Looking for a getaway in December where you can still enjoy all the fun and festivities of Christmas? Bangkok makes a perfect choice and here are some reasons why.
December is one of the best times to visit the Thai capital since it’s part of the cool season with plenty of sunshine and relatively less humidity. Temperatures can range from 24°C to 32°C with it getting cooler in the evenings, while if it gets too hot, you can always unwind in an air-conditioned apartment rental! Bangkok Thailand also experiences minimal rainfall during this period which is another plus too.
For a unique way to spend the Christmas holidays, you can look to embark on a special cruise along the Chao Phraya River. Properties located on the banks of this waterway such as Somerset Riverside Bangkok make an ideal base and you can easily plan such experiences with cruise operators; they offer everything from cocktails and canapes to grand Christmas feasts amidst the enchanting sights of the river.
Bangkok transforms every December as the city becomes a festive wonderland that’s perfect to explore. Christmas trees, lights, and décor add to the charm, especially in key shopping hubs such as CentralWorld, ICONSIAM and Asiatique The Riverfront; the latter which stands beside the Chao Phraya River is one of the best places to visit be it to shop, dine or watch fireworks at the dawn of the New Year.
Have a feeling you will miss the winter element of the Northern hemisphere? While Bangkok doesn’t offer a white Christmas, you can head to a winter wonderland complete with artificial snow from here! Plan a family excursion to Dream World located outside the city; apart from thrilling rides, rollercoasters and shows, it also features Snow Town where fun in the snow awaits amidst the cold.
