Today, 13th April 2014, is New Year in Thailand.
Traditionally this is celebrated with pouring water over your friends and family as a blessing. This has developped into the largest water fight in the world.
Songkran is fun for all the family and celebrated by Thai's and foreigners with gusto. The place to be on this day, is on the streets (not the beach) where people will drive by with their cars laden with people and water.
The bars all have plenty of water (sometimes with ice) to share and the music is pumping all over the streets.
If you don't want to get wet, stay indoors!!
Usually starts about midday and should end when the sunsets.
Wishing you all a Happy New Year
