Street furniture and new lighting are installed and sidewalks smoothly paved with all the shopping malls in and around the intersection linked by covered elevated walkways.

There are shopping discounts, special offers and festive celebrations as well as leisure and entertainment extravaganza held throughout the period. The highlight is the “Bangkok Countdown” held in front of the Central World Plaza on New Year’s Eve in which Thai and foreign visitors gather and join the rest of the world in welcoming the New Year.

 

Vistors to Thailand can now claim VAT refunds at Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Hat Yai and Phuket international airports for a minimum purchase of 5,000 baht per day (this amount can be reached through many purchases in one day).  Upon making a purchase, visitors should request the store to process a VAT refund form.  If in a department store, tourists must collect their receipts and take them to the specified VAT counter to be processed.  Receipts must be processed on the day of purchase.

When departing Thailand, visitors must have the form stamped at the customs VAT checkpoint prior to airline check-in.  Please note that the goods bought and claimed under the VAT refund system must be shown to the customs representative before the form can be stamped.

When passing through passport control, visitors will have the form processed by the Revenue Department officials and receive a VAT refund.
