Ok, so you may have read what Chiang Mai’s Songkran is like, but we thought it would do you good to see it for yourself.
This video was taken during 2014 Songkran and as you can see, just about every pedestrian is a water-spraying predator, locals hang out the back of utes armed with buckets of water, stage concerts spray water cannons at the crowd – even the cameraman gets plenty of soakage! Plus, as you can see, there are plenty of tourists joining in the fun, the Aussies quite evident among them.
About the only people safe from attack are Buddhist monks (see 1:07).
