Thai Water Festival


        posted by Ally, Spacious Planet, October 10, 2011

Do you ever feel like whipping a full bucket of water at a passing motorcyclist?

If the answer is yes ... come to Thailand for the Songkran festival and you will get your chance.

The Songkran festival is Thailand's traditional New Years. The date of the festival has moved around a lot over the years and was previously based on complex astrological calculations.
These days, the dates are fixed to April 13-15 ... the hottest time of the year in Thailand when temperatures regularly exceed 40 degrees centigrade. Given the heat .... it is little wonder why people have taken to having a massive public water fight as part of the festivities.
