It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Seriously, it really, really is. The countless Christmas decorations around town are a constant reminder that it’s officially the most wonderful time of the year. Here are seven places in Bangkok with the best Christmas trees, the best Christmas lights, and the best Christmas decorations for this festive season 2021. To spruce things up, we’ve picked a Christmas song for each venue. The songs are chosen based on what we deem best describe the decorations and the display.
The best Christmas decorations in Bangkok

Song: Silver and Gold
We expect nothing ordinary from ICONSIAM. If not at the venue itself, you’ve probably seen the Christmas lights from across town. The festive structures and colours beautifully complement the architecture and infrastructure of the building.

Song: Green Christmas
Yes, we’re aware that Green Christmas is not the happiest of songs but we’re interpreting the title differently here. For this festive season, the thoughtfully-designed, environmentally-friendly Christmas tree at Capella Bangkok advocates for sustainability as part of their ‘Festive with a Cause’ campaign. Rather than pine or fir, this tree is made up of coconut fronds and is ornamented with brass fingernails, resulting in a unique and beautiful creation.

Song: Christmas All Over Again
Jointly presented by Patek Philippe and PMT The Hour Glass, the traditionally-shaped Christmas tree is ornamented with an emblematic Calatrava Cross at the top. This beautifully complements the brand and is in theme with the expanse.

Song: We All Clap Hands Together
Siam Discovery embraces sustainability with its Christmas decorations for the year. The ‘Circular Living X’mas Tree 2021’ follows their ‘Magic From The Universe’ concept, and is constructed from plastic bottles. They have turned plastic bottles into decorative items, resulting in an innovative and unique Christmas tree.

Song: Baby, it’s Cold Outside
Snow, frost, Santa, mistletoe – this fir real is a wintery Christmas right here in Bangkok. While it’s not really cold outside since winter in Bangkok is pretty much non-existent, B Story Cafe has us convinced that Baby, it’s Cold Outside.
