Songkran is the celebration of the Buddhist New Year that takes over Thailand for 3 full days in April. The goal? To “cleanse” everyone and everything in sight. Yes, prayer is involved but the main way of cleansing is to douse everything in water. Participants are all armed with buckets, water guns, hoses and whatever they can get their hands on that can get others wet. Even the police are not spared from being soaked!

Thailand is the place to be in the spring. First, I have to state the obvious; it’s warm, gorgeous, tropical, clean, and hospitable. The beaches are really second to none. And it will not disappoint if you need a relaxing, sand between your toes,
Thailand - Songkran is the traditional Thai New Year water festival. I need to be sure this is part of my next trip to Thailand
Songkran is a water festival in Thailand. Imagine a giant water fight throughout the whole country where even the Elephants get involved. No one is sparred. Its a ton of fun, but it can be dangerous.
A water fight takes place every year during Songkran, the Thai New Year. Attendees splash each other, and some even break out the water pistol. Elephants -- who are especially effective at dousing water -- join in the fun as well.
