On April 13, Thailand celebrated it’s well known water festival called SONGKRAN to mark the new year on the Buddhist calendar.
I highly recommend this event to any traveler passing through Thailand in this time. In the north of Thailand, people celebrate the new year for 5 days. In the Bangkok it lasts for 2-3 days. In Phuket, however, it is only a one day celebration (which is enough).
We left home at 6 o’clock Saturday travelling to Wat Chalong Temple for sunrise offerings. I thought that we could maybe see some interesting moments at the temple…. and I was right. Read more about the Songkran New Year festival on my blog.
