Songkran Festival, Bangkok: 8 reviews and 12 photos

  Colorful Fountain in Songkran Festival 2005
by Wann

In Songkran Festival or Water festival, a New Year time for all Thai people, take place every year on 13-15 of April. We have all activities about water. In last few years Bangkok try to promote this festival in bangkok because normally people go to join this festival in other provinces such as Chiang mai..etc. I join this festival every year and lately become a normal events for me so in a last couple of years in the festival, I join this event in Bangkok.

I went to Ratchadamnon Road at night where all the way of the road was decorated. There were a dancing colorful fountain in the middle of the road, but the high light was at Democracy Monument where all around the place was decorated. Also nearby there was a thai performance present to visitors in the open area beside the road. (more photos at my travelogue.)
