The video below provides a window on the unique event that is the Songkran water festival. The festival takes place each year in the Southeast Asian country of Thailand. The Songkran water festival coincides with the traditional celebration of Thai New Year, at sometime around the 13th of April to the 15th of April.
Bangkok is of course Thailand’s capital and by far its most populous and important city, politically and culturally. It is Bangkok where the most debaucherous, riotous fun is to be had. During Songkran, water is a central part of the festivities, as can be seen here. It makes for a fun and enjoyable few days in April.
