      Wet, Wild & Wonderful
This wonderfully colourful, happy and ‘wet’ holiday is recognised traditionally on the 13th – 15th of April in Thailand. As Songkran falls in the hottest time of the year, at the end of the dry season, this wet, wonderful and joyous time is welcomed by all.

While it may appear as all fun and games to the uneducated, it is indeed a time of deep rooted culture offering all the opportunity to enjoy the spirit of youth, make merit to the gods and pay respect to one’s elders.

Bangkok Songkran Festival
The water fights will be held in various spots around Banglamphu, most notably Khao San Road and Rattanakosin Royal Square. There will be plenty of action so remember to bring along your bucket or water pistol! You should also leave any valuable electronics at home or in your hotel as there is a very high chance that they could get damaged from all the water being thrown around. Simply place some money into a waterproof bag and then head on out to enjoy the fun.

Chiang Mai Songkran Festival
Visitors can take part in the opening ceremony for the Songkran Festival with a wonderful parade around Chiang Mai city. They can also go local and pour some jasmine-scented water on a Buddha image and elders, enjoy Lanna-style cultural performances and traditions, and try out various northern foods along the streets.

Phuket Songkran Festival
Apart from the refreshing soak from barrels, water guns and buckets, folks in Phuket visit their family members and offer a prayer. 

Ayutthaya Songkran Festival
Songkran in the ancient capital city, Ayutthaya: Probably Thailand’s most unique Songkran celebration with elephants joining the fun! In front of TAT Ayutthaya Office, 13-15 April.

Koh Samui Songkran Festival
On Samui the main spot to play Songkran is Chaweng beach and the surrounding area where the streets are lined with people throwing water on cars and motorbikes as they pass by.
