Central Festival Pattaya Beach lit the tallest Christmas tree in the region to welcome the holiday and bid farewell to 2013.
Pattaya City Councilman Rattanachai Sutidechanai, Tourism Authority of Thailand Pattaya Director Auttaphol Wannakij, and police Superintendent Col. Suwan Chiewnawinthawat lit the 25-meter-tall tree with Central Pattana General Manager Theeraporn Jitnawa and other community leaders Nov. 27.
The mall’s “Joy to the World” gift festival offers surprises and special activities during the month, as well as visits with Santa Claus and holiday lights.
During the promotion, customers spending 1,000 baht or more get a chance to win one of two Mazda CX5s and other prizes every day through Jan. 12.
The area’s largest Christmas tree was lit last week at Central Festival Pattaya Beach.
