Christmas and New Year are perhaps the most beloved and long-awaited holidays in the whole world. Many people prefer to celebrate these holidays in warm exotic countries, for example, in Thailand. Palm trees instead of Christmas trees, the sun and sand instead of snow and frost attract tourists from different countries.
New Year in Thailand is celebrated three times a year: according to the Buddhist, according to the Chinese and according to the European calendar. During the European Christmas holidays, the streets of the Kingdom are decorated with Christmas trees and colorful lights. The Thais celebrate New Year with the whole family at a festive dinner and after the midnight have fun at night clubs or discos and launch fireworks. The next morning the locals go to the temples to offer gifts to the monks and then visit their friends or relatives. The most popular New Year presents are oranges and talismans.

During this period, prices for hotels and air tickets are increasing and in order to save money, it is better to book a room in advance, in early autumn.
