Songkran, the traditional Thai new year festival and often touted as the “world’s largest water battle”, has kicked off in Pattaya a few days ago and will still be in full swing until Wednesday, April 19, when all hell is expected to break loose as usual.
Truth be told, we haven’t made it downtown yet ourselves. After all, this is our umpteenth Songkran in Pattaya and our enthusiasm for this one-week mayhem is somewhat restrained. Anyway, here’s a small collection of the coolest clips we’ve found so far on YouTube. A few more will be added by the end of the week when life returns to normal (and dry) on the hungover streets of Pattaya.
Watch and enjoy as you stay dry behind your screen!
