The BTS and MRT will run into the early hours of the new year to get party goers home after the countdown.
On New Year’s Eve, the BTS and MRT will operate until 2am the next day – but if you stay later for the after-party, you’re on your own.
Taxis are especially difficult to find on New Year’s Eve as many drivers take the day off to spend time with their family.
For those planning to take many trips throughout the day, a one-day pass for BTS skytrains will be sold at Mo Chit, Siam, Chidlom and Saphan Taksin stations for THB140.
The pass can be used on New Year’s Eve only.
Paywall: You’re outta here, Coconuts stories are free for all
We have removed our paywall on all Coconuts stories. This does not mean the end of COCO+ Membership at all, but the value proposition is changing.
Rather than being a transactional subscription – whereby you pay for access to content – it is now a true membership program – whereby Coconuts stories are free for everyone but super-fans can monetarily support our independent journalism, and get added member benefits.
If you'd like to support Coconuts, you can become a COCO+ Member for as little as US$5 per year. Thank you!
