For the second consecutive year, the ICON Siam shopping mall located on the banks of the Chao Phraya River promises to organize the most spectacular firework display in Bangkok for New Year’s Eve 2020.

Entitled “Amazing Thailand Countdown 2020 Experience” , the pyrotechnic show will focus on the “Seven Wonders of the Blessing” illustrating the rich heritage of Thai history, kingdom prosperity, nation, religion, monarchy and agricultural abundance.

The seven acts of the fireworks will be display as follows (official description by the organizers):

Act 1 – The Glory: begins with golden showers of fireworks representing the glorious victory over the land and water and telling the world that this is the golden land blessed by the reigns of Thai Kings until the present time.

Act 2 – Health Giving: wishes the King a long life. The fireworks blast up into the sky and expand like a big tree spreading out its branches. This represents the loving kindness of His Majesty the King towards Thai people.

Act 3 – Way up High: points to the moral glorification of the religion. The fireworks that light up the sky can be compared to the enlightenment that leads the way to a peaceful life.

Act 4 – Joy to the World: felicity and peace. Colorful fireworks in thin and big lines spread through the sky with joy of happiness, representing the contentment of people at leading a happy life in this peaceful land.

Act 5 – Diamond in the Sky: wealth and the national resource called Suvarnabhumi – the land of abundance. The fireworks are like diamond flashes that scatter over the sky, resembling seeds that have been spread and will soon grow.

Act6 – Lucky Star: fortune and harmony. Small and large fireworks in various colours light up the sky on the New Year’s Eve and welcome the New Year as if bringing an auspicious blessing to the Thai people as well as their everlasting happiness.

Act 7 – Power of Love: divinity to protect the country. The red fireworks represent the power of love, care, and protection that will prevent the water from allowing evil to step on land.



It will not necessarily be at ICON SIAM itself that you will have the best view on the fireworks.

The organizers indicated last year that the best spots were:

  • Sathorn bridge
  • Chaloem Phrakiat Park
  • Sathorn pier
  • Khlong San pier
  • Wat Suwan pier
  • LHONG 1919
  • Peninsula Hotel
  • Hilton Millennial Hotel
  • Shangri-La Hotel
  • Mandarin Oriental Hotel
  • Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel

This should also be the case this year.



If the fireworks will be fired after the midnight countdown, the ICON Siam Shopping Center’s New Year’s Party 2020 will start at 6pm with live performances by several Thai artists including Chilling Sunday, Ton Thanasit, Two Popetorn, B5, Nont Tanont, Jintara x Tor x Ben, Twopee Southside …

I will write in a few days an article with more events and tips to celebrate the New Year’s Eve in Bangkok.
