Enjoy an intimate setting that features indigo hues, delicate white details, touches of mahogany and, most importantly, curved panoramic windows that look out to the Chao Phraya River. Blue by Alain Ducasse, located at riverside mall ICONSIAM, is one of the best and most romantic fine-dining restaurants to welcome 2022 in style. Indulge in fine French cuisine crafted by skillful chefs and linger around until late in the evening when ICONSIAM’s state-of-the-art New Year’s Eve fireworks light up the sky right before your eyes.
Mesmerizing fireworks lighting up the inky night sky from every direction—to end the old and ring in the new year on a high—are what everyone is looking forward to on New Year’s Eve.
In Bangkok, fireworks can take place as often as every day. It’s pretty common for riverfront hotels and establishments to shoot them up to celebrate a special occasion (someone’s birthday or marriage, perhaps). But the fireworks that blaze up the sky at the end of the year go on longer and are, by far, grander.
This is why, come New Year’s Eve, the best seats at riverside restaurants are some of the most sought-after and are usually pre-booked for weeks ahead. It doesn’t hurt to start your research now, whether you’re on the lookout for the best spots to welcome the New Year with your loved ones or just looking for dining inspirations by the River of Kings. Check out which restaurants we recommend.
