Songkran, the worlds biggest water fight in Bangkok, Thailand

Songkran festival or in other words the Thai New year is the world’s biggest water fight. It is an absolute must do if you are in Thailand around April of every year. Celebrated all over the country, it symbolises the washing away of all sins and bad luck from the previous year. It’s also a lot of fun to get involved in. Everyone from the toddlers all the way through to the elderly. The streets are crowded, people are squirting water from their mega guns, at anyone and everybody. Everybody is soaked wet, it’s impossible to stay dry. The ice cold buckets that come flying out of nowhereso are a relief from the scorching April sun, although a shock to the body. It was all round, the best fun and I felt so lucky to be in Thailand for this crazy festival.

Happy Songkran
