There’s nothing like a lively Christmas Fair complete with a towering Christmas tree, garlands and twinkling fairy lights to create an air of festivity and good cheer. One of the most enduring family festive traditions, it’s an opportunity for the community to come together.
This year, Avani Sukhumvit Bangkok Hotel will be hosting its Christmas Fair (www.avanihotels.com/sukhumvit-bangkok/festive) on 19-20 December. Over two days, Bangkok residents and visitors will be invited to browse the stalls piled high with locally-made arts and crafts, home-baked goodies and other artisanal creations, all of which make perfect stocking fillers.
To recreate the spirit of traditional Christmas markets with their coziness, glitz and seasonal treats, the event will also feature a gourmet element – a food festival. As the aromas of mulled wine, cookies, gingerbread, roasted chestnuts and spices perfume the air, guests can experience the end-of-the-year holiday the European way.
For the adults, live music and lucky draws will provide an added diversion, while the youngest guests will find a real Christmas wonderland at the Kids’ Zone with team games, a bouncing castle, face painting and dance competitions. The bearded man himself will be stopping by to hand out gifts to all those who have been nice this year.
The Christmas Fair will take place on the 7th floor of Avani Sukhumvit Bangkok between 19-20 December. Entry is free for one Adult with one paying kid in the Kids’ Zone entry fee with an entry fee of THB 350 per child.
