What to See at ICONSIAM's Bangkok Illumination 2022


ICONSIAM’s Solar-powered Christmas Lights Illuminate Chao Phraya River Until Jan. 5

Considered one of the most anticipated festivities in the city this holiday season, the “ICONSIAM Bangkok Illumination 2022" along the world-class Chao Phraya River will be open to the public until Jan. 5, 2023.

Together with ICONSIAM, the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), B.Grimm Power Public Company Limited, S.Napha Company Limited, Metropolitan Electricity Authority, Department of Alternative Energy Development and Efficiency, and President Bakery Public Company Limited collaborated to bring the festival illumination in Bangkok.

On Nov. 1, TAT Executive Director for Events Nat Kruthasoot presided over a Christmas lighting ceremony, which featured a 20-metre-tall Christmas tree powered by solar lights and decorated with recycled materials.

The organisers used alternative energy in the form of “solar cell” in hybrid Christmas lights in a bid to reduce power consumption and carbon footprint. The concept of using clean energy coincides with ICONSIAM’s sustainable practises to provide “a unique experience that attracts international visitors in this high season,” ICONSIAM Managing Director Supoj Chaiwatsirikul said via an article by The Thaiger yesterday.

The event also aims to celebrate the opening of Thailand to international tourists in line with the easing of travel restrictions worldwide. The ICONSIAM Bangkok Illumination 2022 can be viewed at the River Park on the mall’s ground floor and the Napalai Terrace on the seventh floor.



There will also be a water dance show every Monday to Thursday from 7 PM and two fountain shows every Friday to Sunday (including public holidays) at 6:30 PM and 8 PM, respectively.
