The video shown here gives the uninitiated visitor to the Songkran water festival some idea as to what this great event is all about.
It shows excited tourists and locals engaging in an epic water battle with a collection of elephants. There are not many countries where such a spectacle would be possible to imagine.
Away from the fun of the world’s biggest water fight, the video also shows another important aspect to the Songkran water festival. That is the great migration of people that usually occurs as a result of the Songkran water festival. This is due to the festival being a time to celebrate and come together with family members. Many Thais make the long journey back to their home towns and provinces to be with loved ones.
