lebua Hotels & Resorts Wishes Happy New Year 2018

Happy New Year 2018 ! lebua Hotels and Resorts' annual tradition once again put the city of Bangkok on the world map of New Year’s Eve celebrations, when the iconic Bangkok Ball Drop descended 49 feet from above Sirocco, the world’s highest alfresco restaurant, to usher in the 2018.

Suspended 872 feet in the air and visible for more than a mile across the city, the Bangkok Ball Drop at lebua is the highest in the world. It broke the world record for the highest ball drop when it was unveiled in 2013, surpassing the Times Square Ball Drop in New York.

Made in Thailand by a team of 50 engineers and craftsmen who factor altitude, wind gusts and visibility into the construction, the ball weighs in at 1.2 tons, and consists of a steel frame of 20 hexagons and 12 pentagons, covered with a translucent fabric, and combines 2,950 LED lights, and 50 strobe lights. Now in its fifth consecutive year it was the city’s most memorable sight of the new year.
