Whenever you are in Thailand, there is always something worth celebrating, which is just one of the reasons why Thailand is one of our favourite places in the world. The most well known festival is the Thai New Year celebration of Songkran in April, but if you can’t make it over for then, there is…
Hey guys, Gayle here!
We’ve almost all heard of the legendary Full Moon Party at New Year but have you heard Of Songkran, the Thai New Year celebration?
If the answer is no, let us remedy this for you, because we’d hate for you to miss out!
Songkran happens from April 13th to 15th and is a 3 day long water fight in celebration of the Thai New Year. The idea is that it washes away the old and welcomes the new. April happens to be the hottest month of the year too, so it is a welcome relief. People will go around throwing buckets of cold water on one another and although this happens all over the country, you’ll find the biggest celebrations in Bangkok and Chiang Mai.
There is no escape! Kids and adults alike get involved and the only way to stay dry is to be seen holding either a camera or a cigarette … or stay inside – but why would you want to? This is some serious fun! For at least one of the days, it is recommended that you get a Tuk Tuk and drive through the city whilst spraying people with water … it’s the ultimate waterfight and a great way to meet people and make new friends!
The best way to truly understand how this goes down is to see it for yourself … check out one of our favourite Youtube videos below!
Great news!! … We still have a couple of spaces available for our Ultimate Thailand Tour on these dates, so not only can you join us for the best way to start your Thailand adventure, but you can get involved in what must be one of the biggest water fights in the world!
