Tuk Tuk Tours
Explore Bangkok by the iconic tuk tuk
The festive period is almost upon us and with borders closed this year, for many Bangkok residents it is a great excuse to splash out on a lavish Christmas dinner. Most of Bangkok’s top hotels and restaurants all have special menu and offers.
This article was last updated for Christmas 2020 and for Christmas 2021 it will be updated closed towards the end of this year. For updates please do sign up to our newsletter.
Here we list some of the best and most interesting Christmas Dinners and Lunches in Bangkok. The most elaborate are the big buffets with free-flow wine or Champagne, but several also offer set menu options. Whilst the main focus of this article is on Christmas Eve Dinner and Christmas Day Lunch, many restaurants also offer special menus for the month of December.
For more Xmas inspiration check out our guide to Christmas in Bangkok. Also, check out our own Santa Tuk Tuk Tours, where we will also be incorporating a great Christmas Dinner this year. Expique also offers the option to arrive at your Christmas dinner in style in one of our special Christmas Tuk Tuks driven by Santa.
Before we list all the big and grand hotels, we have 2 interesting options. It has been a very different year, so why not celebrate Xmas in a very different way.
Expique offers a truly unique Xmas experience. On one of our Santa Tuk Tuk Tours, you will explore Bangkok in our festive tuk tuks with Santa behind the wheel. This experience will combine Santa’s favourite street food snacks with a special Xmas feast at Santa’s Hideaway in The Flower Market!!!! More surprises install.
