First time in Bangok

Hello there :)

Me and my friends are going to Bangok this year and we would love to get advise from people that have already been to Bangok. We will be going on december and one of the nights will be on 25 december which is christmas eve.

First question: is there any special event in christmas eve that we should not miss ?

Second question: we love to dance/party. Which are the best clubs or bars in Bangok. Usualy we like pop music but we wouldn’t mind trying something different

Any help would be appreciated:)

25 December is actually Christmas Day.

But as Thailand is predominantly a Buddhist country Christmas is not celebrated per se. Hotels, bars, shopping malls catering to westerners put up decorations and trees.

For night clubs - Bangkok.com also has lists like "Top 10 Bars"

"Top 10 Nightlife" to explore. It's a good place to start getting ideas & you'll surly just discover some great places once you arrive :)

There is Levels next to Aloft hotel in Sukhumvit Soi 11

That may fit your style :)

For nightclubs and bars you can also do a Google search too.

If on a tight budget beer bars are cheaper than fancy clubs.

Sample:

www.bangkok.com/ratchadapisek/nightlife.htm#

http://www.hotelthailand.com/bkk_night/

Some hotel locations you can just WALK to nightlife.

Forum search with your computer can be helpful.

Christmas eve (24th December) and Christmas day (25th December) will both be busy nights if you are visiting nightlife where a lot of tourists go.

I would suggest for a good selection of nightclubs with a mixed clientele that ( RCA) Royal City Avenue Ratchadapisek might be your best bet, not the cheapest area around but much frequented by better off Thais as well as western tourists. https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attraction_Rev…

If you are looking for nightie on the cheap (but still plenty of fun) then you might try Khaosan Road https:/…REVIEWS
