A Very Bangkok Christmas

Anyone who assumes just because Thai people don’t celebrate Christmas it’s not really a thing here would be massively mistaken. Bangkok seriously goes to town on Christmas, like big time. The malls are insanely decorated, it’s like fairy lights have been spewed over the city and the festive tunes are pumping all over the place. I thought I’d share with you a snippet of the festive feel going on in my adopted city!

So, despite the tropical climate (although we are experiencing a ‘cold spell’, it’s a positively chilly 16 degrees and I have jeans and a jacket on) I am feeling pretty Christmassy – we even have a tree in our apartment for the first time since moving here!

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas wherever you are spending the holiday!

    I’ve only once been in a hot place near Christmas (Singapore) and it looked very odd to have large plastic snowmen in the blazing sun! Happy Christmas and thanks for visiting The Glasgow Gallivanter.
