Car park attendants wear Santa costumes at shopping mall in Thailand

Amusing footage shows car park attendants dressed in Santa Claus costumes to mark the Christmas season in Bangkok, Thailand.

The staff are tasked with directing cars as they arrive and leave at the Em Quartier upmarket shopping mall in the Buddhist-majority Thai capital city.

However, they showed that the Southeast Asian country enthusiastically joins in with festive activities to mark the Christian holiday season.

The staff were decked out in bright red Saint Nicholas outfits with fluffy white beards and white gloves.

Passing driver Nong Belle said: ‘I thought it was really cute. We just need snow here to complete the Christmas look but I don’t think that will ever happen.’
