Best Places to Spend Christmas in Thailand

Thailand is a beautiful country to visit, and as December is the dry season, Christmas is one of the best times of year to visit Thailand.

Some places are more Christmassy than others, thanks to ex-pats and tourists, but even so, it’s not as festive as you may be accustomed to.


It’s enough to allow you to feel the Christmas spirit and a tiny bit of home with you on your travels. Aside from the Christmas factor, a visit to Bangkok is always fantastic.

Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai is full of bars and clubs geared towards tourists, meaning you’re more likely to experience some festive cheer and decorations in the week leading up to the 25th of December.

Koh Pha Ngan

There are few places better than Koh Pha Ngan. It’s a tropical paradise, a beautiful and relaxing part of Thailand that makes for a great visit.

Koh Tao

There are great options for Christmas dinners and fireworks and beach parties on Christmas Eve. Again, despite not celebrating Christmas in Thailand, the Thais are very accommodating.


Phuket makes for a great choice at Christmas, particularly if you want to occupy your time, as there is an abundance of things to do in Phuket.
