bangkok wtf, part n

“Siam Paragon looks like it’s having a seizure” — friend, on mall Christmas decorations

We might not have clean air, or attractive male expats, but nobody beats Bangkok when it comes to sheer WTF-ness.

Despite not being Christian, Bangkok gets into Christmas big-time, as it gives people an excuse to show off and buy things. All the major malls and hotels have big, impressive displays, but you don’t always get the impression that people really “get” Christmas. For example, the Four Seasons Hotel on Rachadamri Christmas display features:

– A picture of the His Majesty the King of Thailand
– A real palm tree decorated in lights
– A fake pine Christmas tree decorated in lights
– A snowman
– A wooden house with frosted windows, etc, indicating winter

    And if you notice, the Christmas tree in front of Siam Paragon is always the same every year!
