The Chinese New Year is a time for families to come together and reconcile by forgetting all grudges, and celebrating the themes of happiness, wealth, and longevity. In addition to making amends – feasts abound as do fireworks. But where should you celebrate the Year of the Rabbit on February 3rd?
- Head to the Beach
Why not escape from the city for a bit and head to the shores of exotic Pattaya? Whatever you fancy – you’re sure to find it here. From pulse pumping parties to relaxing island getaways the ‘Vegas’ of Thailand has you covered during the Chinese New Year.
- Head to the Club
If you’re looking for a little excitement the nightlife scene of Bangkok is sure to deliver. Celebrate the Year of the Rabbit in style at Bangkok’s club paradise RCA – or if you’re not feeling the younger crowds – head Thong Lo and Ekkamai for a taste of ‘la vida loco’ served with refinement.
- Head to the Hills
Leave the crowds behind and head to Chiang Mai for a chill holiday with a touch of culture. Thailand’s original Lanna Kingdom is so chill – that you might not want to return to the chaos of the big city after experience a Northern style Chinese New Year.
Valentine’s Day – held on February 14th – is a celebration of love and affection between intimate companions and a great excuse to party regardless of whether you’re in a relationship or not. Thailand embraces this Western holiday to the max and there is certainly no shortage of romantic places.
- Romantic Riverside Dinner
Take your honey just before sunset and enjoy a feast on the banks of the Chao Phraya River. Quaint dining venues abound and the succulent seafood served here is to die for. Afterwards hop on a river boat for a romantic starlit cruise.
- Romantic Market Tour
Drop by for an evening stroll with your special someone at Suan Lum Night Bazaar. This bustling night market is a shopping and entertainment icon in Bangkok and the perfect place to shop for romantic gifts.
- Romantic Club Night
If you’re single Valentine’s Day is probably not your favourite holiday. Head to Sukhumvit Soi 11 for some action packed clubbing and perhaps you’ll find that special someone to celebrate with next year.
