Sawadee Pi Mai!

Yes, it is that favourite time of year again, Thai New Year!

Songkran is the most popular Thai holiday with both the Thai people and Tourists celebrating the arrival of the Thai New Year together. It is traditionally celebrated by dropping water over the heads of your loved ones and covering the cheeks in white powder (as a method of cleansing you for the New Year). This has developed into the world's biggest water fight!

Yes that is right, yesterday Thailand was at war! From about midday yesterday, tourists and Thai's lined the streets with buckets, water guns, talcum powder, beer and loud music. The only place to be was on the main street running through the island, well unless you wanted to stay dry!

Sawadee Pi Mai (Happy New Year) to all our Thai friends.
