November marks the coming of the festive season in Bangkok. This means Christmas lights and glittery decor now adorn the city’s major shopping centers, which compete to put on the most spectacular show. 

ICONSIAM

ICONSIAM, the megamall on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River, has once again decorated its riverfront with a golden Chritsmas tree inspired by the central decorative ornament of Bai Sri Soo Kwan, a Thai ritual meant to invoke the blessings of good spirits.

For years, centralwOrld has put up the country’s tallest Christmas tree, and it will be no different this year. This holiday season, the mall has set up a towering 30-meter tree decorated with LINE FRIENDS characters such as Brown and Cony.
