BANGKOK — Tonight through early next year, a downtown shopping mall will be decked out with a light show, festive music, outdoor decorations and a towering Christmas tree.
At 8:30pm, the flip will be switched on the holiday display at an amphitheater outside the CentralWorld shopping mall, where grandeur, whimsy and selfie opportunities will be available from a light installation, colorful displays and – of course – a large shimmering tree.
The decorations were designed by Javier Gonzalez Burgos, an Argentine contemporary artist who transformed Hong Kong’s Time Square into a Christmas-y spectacle in 2013.
The attraction will be on view Monday through Jan. 7. Light shows will be on display and an orchestra will perform three times daily – 7pm, 8pm and 9pm – Tuesday through Sunday.
CentralWorld can be reached from BTS Chit Lom.
