You might be wondering apart from Bangkok, where else in Thailand to go for countdown celebrations. This year, Central Phuket held their first New Year’s countdown in an effort to  make Phuket an international destination for New Year celebrations.


Yes, it is their first and from then on, countdown celebrations will be happening in Central Phuket every year.


Central Phuket’s concept of ‘The Reflection of Celebration’ represents the unity of people from all over the world” and they are using music to pass on happiness and celebration on New Year’s Eve and welcome in the New Year.

Hence, participants at the countdown event got to enjoy performances by both  Thai and international artists like 9×9, Ben Chalatit, Fymme Bongkot, Ghost Band, Mariam B5 and DJ Whitenoise.


The fireworks show is not just any show but it will be a 2 minutes long show, conducted in five series under the themes of rainforest, blue ocean, sunrise, colour of life and golden celebration for the grand finale.
