ICONSIAM is spreading a joyful spirit in "Bangkok Illumination at ICONSIAM”

ICONSIAM opens its door to welcome all visitors to join their Christmas and New Year celebration. Visitors will be captivated by the longest line of Christmas trees stretching more than 400 meters along the river. The sparkling trees were inspired by Thai identity. “Lotus”, symbol of life, was re-interpreted to represent the worship of river, which blesses people with joyful New Year. “Bai Sri” symbolizes the gesture of presenting a New Year gift to everyone.

Also featured in the event will be ‘Magic Carpet Bangkok’ by Miguel Chevalier and Software Cyrille Henry & Antoine Villeret, Mr. Chevalier’s largest interactive multimedia mapping or floor mapping. Miguel Chevalier, world-renowned French artist who pioneers digital and virtual arts and is the mastermind behind this great creation, applies an advanced lighting technology to feature an exquisite art that incorporates Thai patterns and national identity in an interactive way. Projected on a vast area, the art invites visitors to step out of the reality into the virtual world.

Be invited into the magical light carpet, which is on display from today – December 27, 2018 and January 5 – 31, 2019. In addition, throughout eight weeks, the visitors will enjoy a wide array of entertainment performed in two rounds, at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m., every weekend in rotation. Throughout December, they will be entertained by “River of Life, River of Art” performance. As a highlight Christmas celebration on December 25, Santa and Santarina will spread the joy while a choir will sing Christmas carols in an angelic voice. Throughout January, a colourful parade of drummers will excite visitors with their beat under “the colourful rhythm” concept. On January 12, kids should not miss a range of fun awaiting them to celebrate the National Children’s Day.
