This festive period celebrates the traditional New Years’s day in Thailand and takes place from 13th to 15th April each year. This period is filled with traditions, celebrations and rituals. It is one of a kind cultural experience for visitors. Apart from paying respect to ancestors, making merit and enjoying family time, the festivities include a major water festival. The water festival is known as one of the most fun celebrations in the world!
Get ready to be totally soaked as everybody will be carrying water guns, super soakers and huge water buckets to splash the whole city!
