Songkran Festival which is also the Thai New Year starts on from the 13th of April to the 15th of April will have you all soaked into the hustle and bustle that consists of three days of fun-filled water-fights and non-stop revelries.
This year, it will officially start on April 13, (although some cities start off celebrating this festival a few days before) and the celebration continues for three to five days, based on the location.
Generally, Songkran is celebrated throughout the entire city. Whether you’re around Thapae Gate, walking along a small alley or outside the town, people have their water buckets -and pistols everywhere ready. The most popular places are around the moat, Loi Kroi Road, canals, the Ping River as well as major places such as the aforementioned Thapae Gate or Chiang Mai Gate
