Expat Holiday Gatherings?

Avatar Image

I’m traveling solo now, and it looks like I’ll be alone for (American) Thanksgiving in Bali and Christmas in Thailand… any advice on where I can find gatherings or people to celebrate with? I know I probably won’t find my beloved canned Ocean Spray cranberry sauce but it would be nice to have a ‘family’ of fellow travelers or expats to get together in lieu of being at home.

From my own experience while travelling, it’s often worth contacting local hostels, even if you aren’t staying in one. Some of the more lively ones will hold events for their guests on big holidays like those, or could at least direct you to a local bar, social venue etc which might be.

Sorry I can’t be more specific, but I hope that helps anyway!

Thanks Becca! Great tip – I found a local restaurant that does a thanksgiving buffet so I’ll get my food fix and hopefully some good company too :)
