Ready for a light show to usher in 2021? Bangkok has three landmarks with firework shows tomorrow to celebrate the New Year.

Visitors in the capital’s shopping district can go see a fireworks show that will play in harmony along with a display on a giant interactive digital screen and live music from Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra at CentralwOrld shopping mall, which will be open until midnight instead of the usual 10pm. Romantic river dates more your vibe? More than 25,000 fire rockets will be shot into the capital’s sky in Chao Phraya River by Iconsiam shopping mall, which will close at 1am.

Both malls will broadcast their shows online for people who don’t want to go out due to COVID fear or can’t reserve seats in the venues nearby to enjoy them. CentralwOrld will start broadcasting at 11:40pm through LINE TV and Channel One31 while Iconsiam will start broadcasting at 11:30pm through more channels including its official facebook page, MCOT, Thairath, Khaosod, and TrueID.

Asiatique shopping center will also provide a New Year’s firework show orchestrated by the world-class show champion team PYRO2000 from the United Kingdom. This show won’t be streaming online though, so visitors can only enjoy it in-person, live at the venue.
