Did you lay out your plans for New Year’s Eve already? No? Don’t wait too long. The last night of the year is quickly approaching, so what are you waiting for?
Granted, you could celebrate it with friends and family in wintery landscapes, depending on where you are located, or you could celebrate it in style, sipping drinks at the beach, in the club, or even in the private pool in Phuket.
Sounds expensive? You think you can’t afford it?
Well, think again. Phuket has some of the most competitive price-points when it comes to accommodation abroad. Forget New York, forget Paris; what is even Las Vegas compared to this marvel of an island that Phuket embodies?
There are many places to celebrate New Year in Phuket – too many to list here individually. Although Thais don’t celebrate New Year Eve, as it is not listed among their national holidays, and their calendar is different compared to Western standards (Thai New Year is in April and called Songkran), they’re surely not to disappoint when it comes to activities and pampering customers during this day of celebration. Also, among us, probably no Thai will ever want to miss out on a reason to party and celebrate, so you can be certain that special events will be organised all over Phuket.
Are you into parties, preferring to dance into the New Year, or would you rather relax and count the last seconds of the year while on a rooftop terrace sipping drinks or cocktails?
No matter your personal preference, in Phuket you are guaranteed to find a suitable pastime for the special night.
Celebrating at the beach
Make your evening memorable by partying out in the open; celebrate New Year’s at one of the many beaches around Phuket. Being the heart of the island’s nightlife, most will be likely be in and around Patong for their beach-celebrations, as the famous Bangla Road ebbes out right at the beachfront.
Each December, the more popular beaches around Phuket become effectively giant party locations. Hundreds gather on the sand to see in the New Year.
Patong Beach usually has organised music and entertainments, but most of the others don’t, which is one more reason to celebrate there; that is, if you’re after music and entertainment.
You’ll be among people that bring their own fireworks, floating lanterns, drinks and more; it creates a very festive atmosphere and a fun place to be.
Patong Beach is definitely the most popular choice, but you will also find celebrations on Karon, Kata, Kamala and Bangtao beaches, among others.
Arguably the highlight of Bangla Road – and worthy of a separate mention – are the clubs. The main ones each have special events for New Year, featuring great guest DJs and drinks offers, among others. They will often have special themes for the night, so if you’re in for a dance-the-night-away kind of New Year’s – you’re in for a guaranteed night full of entertainment at clubs like Illuzion, Seduction and the White Room.
If you prefer a more quiet night, many hotels around Phuket will have special gala dinners and parties for New Year’s Eve. In some cases, this requires a mandatory additional cost, which can come as an unpleasant shock. Be sure to check what your hotel is planning in advance. In some cases, the cost is entirely justified by an exceptional meal, fireworks, music and dancing. This is certainly the most family-friendly way to celebrate the event.
What is better than all of the above? To celebrate New Year’s Eve with friends at your own condominium of course! To hear more about your investment opportunities, please feel free to getting in touch with us via E-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
