What / Why :

Winter Light
Every year from December to January, encapsulating the Christmas and New Year seasons, Ratchaprasong undergoes a make-over and emerges festooned in breath-taking displays of colour and light. The tradition of decorating was started by Peninsular Plaza and The Regent hotel (now Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok). It later expanded to Sogo, now a part of Amarin Plaza, and CentralWorld, Central Chitlom and Gaysorn.
During this time of year, Ratchaprasong is the brightest lit area in Bangkok. Visit after 6pm when the dusk has fallen and admire the artistry in the visual stimulation. With lights and decorations covering almost every square inch, it’s sometimes difficult to know where to look.
It’s also a period heaven-made for photo opportunities, as each major shopping centre provides its own Christmas display featuring impressive, adorable, imaginative and strange symbols and figures of the season. Take photos of people taking photos!
