Thailand ushers in 2022
Though many government-sponsored countdown events were cancelled to prevent the spread of Omicron, the private sector was allowed to hold parties to usher in 2022.
Event organisers, however, were instructed to strictly adhere to Covid Free Setting measures, which require all staff and attendees to be fully vaccinated and undergo an antigen test at the entrance. Events could only be held in open-air venues, with a limited number of guests and the application of social distancing.
Here are some photos of top countdown events across the country:
