Celebrating Songkran in Bangkok
Water Proof Songkran
Every year, Songkran transforms Bangkok into a war zone where warriors armed with water guns go crazy splashing their victims, willing or not. Whether you’re going to the nearestconvenient store or even getting food on the street, you’ll likely end up wet. If getting soaked is not how you’d prefer to spend Thailand’s longest holiday, then check out this list of fun things you can do both inside and outside the house that don’t involve you holding a water pistol or avoiding those carrying one.
