Discover the Magic of Christmas in the Heart of Sukhumvit
Phrom Phong, in the Sukhumvit tourist district of Bangkok, is home to K Village: it’s one of the most well-known neighborhoods in the city, and is very easy to reach especially when using the BTS Skytrain system. The aesthetically-pleasing shopping centre is towards the end of Sukhumvit Soi 26, near to where the tree-lined avenue connects to Rama 4 Road.
December is of course one of the best months in the year weather-wise to be in Thailand. Cooler than average temperatures make it the ideal time to be outdoors whether it be for al fresco dining, playing in the park, or visiting open-air shopping malls such as K Village.
It is Christmas however that December is synonymous with, and in recent years people in Thailand have been ramping up their celebrations of the joyous occasion with every year that passes. Visiting a Christmas market is a marvellous way to get into the festive mood!
There are a plethora of activities at K Village’s Christmas Market and Playground 2022 for anyone attending to join in with, as you can see from the photos above. Plinko, Claus Hat Ring Toss, Lucky Draw, Duck Fishing, and Can Toss are some of the super games to play.
Children will love racing around on the electric go-karts within the designated area inside the mall, under the careful supervision of staff in charge of the wannabe Lewis Hamiltons. The Bouncy Castle amusement, and Carousel ride, are also highly-recommended to give your little ones a fun and thrilling experience during this most wonderful time of the year.
Why not get into the Christmas spirit, and participate in the two workshop activities? Face Painting and Christmas Tattoo are enjoyable for kids, but also for their parents – you’ll be feeling festive in no time, once you have been seen by the professional make-up artists.

Appelle, as seen above, is another great stand to check out, with its exceptional range of festive snacks and drinks: if you have a sweet tooth then you must try a Christmas Apple, thickly-covered in chocolate and sprinkles. The Apple x Tea Blend is another highlight of their available options – a mixture of cold pressed apple juice and refreshing oolong tea.
