Where to watch New Year's Eve in Bangkok?Hi all,
We will be staying in Bangkok the nights of Dec 30 and Dec 31. We are looking for a hotel where we can more or less stay in the hotel and watch all the New Year's Eve celebrations (at least those occurring at midnight).
We are looking for any recommendations for hotels where we will be able to watch fireworks as well as enjoy lots of activities during the day. Suggestions for things to do on those 2 days are also appreciated as neither of us has been to Thailand before.
Thank you so much!

2Unfortunately when the celebrations are over at Central World, try and get a taxi and you'll think they are trying to sell it to you. I was quoted 2,000 baht for a ride that is normally 40 baht. Sheer greed. Night buses still run though.
If you don't want to listen to Thai bands at Central, there is a huge fireworks display on the river Chao Phraya. But any high up hotel room with a bit of a view you'll probably be able to see and certainly hear the NYE fireworks.

4The big hotels on the river have a great fireworks display .. Stay the night or book a dinner or get on a cruise boat .
The river has the best fireworks in Bangkok ..

5Ok, so we want a place on the river. Does anyone know where the barges (that shoot off the fireworks) park? The river seems to wind it's way through the city and I love to watch fireworks... So I am trying to find a hotel that will have a good view (and want to make sure I get a room on the correct side of the hotel.)
