There is a lot going on in Bangkok all year round, but on New Year’s Eve, things reach a whole different level.
There are parties and things going on all over the city, from the amazing fireworks by the river you can enjoy, from luxury hotels, dinner cruises or the best rooftop bars in the city, to the wildest parties in town with hundreds of sexy Thai girls.
Needless to say, the NYE celebration in Bangkok is something unique that should be on everyone’s list of categories. And here’s our recommendation where to get the New Year in style in the City of Angels.
At the Gentlemen’s Club
Bangkok is home to the best gentlemen’s clubs in Asia and every night there are amazing shows and girls, so just imagine for a second how wild it gets in the NYE.
Take for example The PIMP Bangkok, Thailand’s No. 1 G-Club, which becomes an amazing night scene with more than 200 young Thai girls, special sexy performances with Thailand’s hottest network idols, as well as live bands and international DJs up to Late at night.
At the Gentlemen’s Club you can even rent a private party room and say goodbye to the year in the privacy of your own private club, surrounded by the hottest models from Thailand.
This is the best way to start the new year if you ask us.
In a nightclub
But it’s not just the gentlemen’s clubs that are getting all the action on New Year’s Eve.
In Bangkok, all the big nightclubs bring the best local and international DJs to theme parties with exclusive shows and unique artists.
Neon light color, LED robot shows, aerial silk acrobats and more. Every nightclub tries to increase the competition for the busiest night of the year.
Do not forget to order as soon as they have announced the event, as most VIP tables are usually booked within a few days.
At a pool party
If you’re from Europe or North America, you probably never imagined celebrating by the pool with beautiful bikini models for NYE.
But this is one of the many ways you can celebrate the New Year in Bangkok.
The city usually has at least one or two pool parties for Christmas Eve and NYE.
Keep an eye on the Facebook or Instagram account of the best pool parties to see if they have a special occasion for the event.
At a music festival
Bangkok is known for hosting some of the biggest music festivals in Asia, and usually one or two of them take place right on New Year’s Eve.
The most popular are the Meta Music Festival and Neon Countdown on Show DC, which have featured artists like Ben Nicki, Oswin, Armin Van Bjorn, Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike, and many other international titles in recent years.
There has not been a major music festival for NYE since the plague began, but we will let you know when one is announced. We can not wait.
At the rooftop bar
Another great way to celebrate the end of the year in Bangkok is at a rooftop bar.
Each offers stunning views of the city skyline, and some have great locations for watching the last sunset of the year, and later in the night, at the stunning fireworks during the countdown.
Most rooftop bars have DJs and special events for the event and are always in high demand, so do not forget to book a place in advance.
For NYE we recommend Mahanakhon Tower, from which you can get an amazing 360 degree view of the city and watch fireworks from all over the city.
In a 5 star hotel
Most luxury hotels in Bangkok offer special events for the NYE. It can be an extravagant buffet with lobster and caviar, for a big party with a live band, DJs, gigs and a special chef just for the occasion.
Luxury hotels are a great option to celebrate NYE in Bangkok if you are looking for something sophisticated with fine dining, but more relaxed than the wild parties the city is known for.

Boat trip on Chao Phraya
Aside from the rooftop bars and top hotels in Bangkok, there is another way to see the amazing fireworks: a boat ride on Chao Phraya at night.
From classic dinner cruises to lively boat parties, there are plenty of boat cruises to choose from.
Enjoy the beauty of the city’s landmarks from the river as you celebrate the New Year in style.
Where should you celebrate New Year’s Eve in Bangkok?
Without a doubt, at The PIMP Bangkok. This is without a doubt the best club in town to celebrate the New Year and there are always amazing specials, gigs and girls for the event.
