Thailand Illumination Festival 2017

This year, Bangkok has its own holiday illumination event, the Thailand Illumination Festival 2017. From now until 6 January 2018, starting at 6pm each evening, 39 rai (62,400 sqm) of land on Ratchadapisek Road will be lit up with over one million LED lights. Inspired by the original illumination fests in Japan, the lights take the shape of animals, tunnels, a Christmas tree, geometric figures and more.

Visitors can enjoy “The King of Our Heart” exhibition, featuring an impressive light-and-sound display presenting the royal compositions of His Majesty the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej. They can also play games for charities such as Chaipattana Foundation and Siriraj Foundation, and taste street food from over 30 restaurants. There is also a music performance nightly.

On New Year’s Eve, the venue will host a countdown amid the spectacular illuminated garden, with a mini-concert by Atom Chanakan, the Sincharoen Brothers and Jennifer Kim.

Located at Ratchadapisek Soi 8, opposite the Esplanade shopping centre, the event is open to the public with free admission. Hours are Monday to Thursday, 6pm to 10pm, and from Friday to Sunday, 6pm to 11pm.
