Songkran festival in Bangkok

A splash of fun, family gatherings and countless memorable moments — Songkran festival in Bangkok is easily one of the biggest occasions in Thailand as it is local residents’ New Year’s Day. There is a myriad of ways to celebrate this Songkran festival in Bangkok. While Songkran is often associated with pool parties and water fights, some return to their hometown or go temple visiting. Not only to stay cool during the warm April, but water splashing is also a traditional ritual. It is believed that water will then wash away sins, negativity and bad spirits for the New Year. This local ritual, as well as other cultural infusions, make Songkran a must during your stay in Bangkok.

Songkran festival in Bangkok is a lot of fun with numerous events going on in town. Namely, the annual S2O Festival is always a popular event over the Songkran. The three-day EDM party spans from April 13 to 15 at Live Park Rama 9.

A fun occasion for young local Thais, the street will be packed with people and plenty of fun. To help you reenergize, there will be a number of food stalls and booths, selling food and drinks as well as more water guns. There will be beer on sale during the day for those who’d like to enjoy an ice-cold tipple in between.
