The Thai New Year.

Songkran is a major festival in Thailand and perhaps the country's most symbolic festival.

It is a celebration of the Thai New Year and welcomes in the new season. It is a religious festival, and it serves as a reminder that Thailand is a deeply Buddhist country. However the festival maintains a joyful and popular atmosphere at the same time. Tradition dictates that epic water fights take place: a symbolic gesture. The streets are transformed into veritable battlegrounds with gallons of water thrown about in good humour.

Celebrated in conjunction with the commemoration ceremony in honour of the Chakri Dynasty,Songkran is a great time to discover the city at its most festive.
