Monogram client, lebua Hotels and Resorts started 2014 off right. Multiple news sources including ABC, were abuzz this New Years Eve when lebua hosted the world’s tallest ball drop (watch video) at their luxury hotel property. The drop featured a glowing globe that dropped 64 stories when Thailand struck midnight. The massive 1.2-ton ball featured 2,950 LED lights and 50 strobe lights and kicked off Bangkok’s firework display over the Chao Phraya River. The ball was a site to behold, as it could be seen from over a mile away.

 

To put it in perspective, New York’s beloved Times Square ball fell 475 feet whereas lebua’s ball had an 872-foot drop.

The balldrop set a new Guinness World Record, and serves as the first of what will become an annual tradition at lebua Hotels and Resorts.
