Songkran 2024

Immerse Yourself in the Celebration of Thai New Year with Vibrant Traditions and Events

Discover Songkran

Songkran, Thailand’s Water Festival, is the nation’s renowned celebration, often referred to as the Thai New Year. It takes place from April 13 to April 15, though festivities can continue for days in various regions.

Songkran Celebrations

During Songkran, people engage in spiritual rituals such as paying respects to elders, visiting temples, and cleansing Buddha images with scented water. The festival also features lively water fights, symbolizing cleansing and renewal, where revelers armed with water guns and buckets douse each other in playful displays of camaraderie and joy.

The Best Places for Songkran in Bangkok

  • Khao San Road: the backpacker haven of Bangkok, transforms into a water-soaked playground during Songkran. Here, revelers armed with water guns and buckets engage in friendly water fights that last for days. The street pulsates with music, laughter, and the splashes of water as people from all walks of life come together to celebrate.
