Happy Songkran Thailand!
Yesterday, the three day celebration in Thailand called Songkran festival kick starts to the cheers of both locals and tourists. Songkran is one of the most important event in the Buddhist calendar as it officially marks the start of Thai New Year. Water plays the key and most important element during the celebration, if you’re in Thailand this weekend prepare to be splashed either with water pistols or yes, buckets of water. Many Thais also goes home to their hometown to be with family as the other important element during the Songkran festival is family. And at the temples Buddhists pour water on the images of Buddha as well as at the hands of the Buddhist monks. If you’re at Bangkok, lucky you, you’re in for tons of fun, from processions to performances and yes, you’ll definitely be soaked.
