Songkran Water Festival

Category: Festival
Celebrated In: Thailand

April is generally a hot month in Thailand, because it signifies the country’s summer season. During the Songkran Festival 2013, you can immerse in a “complementary bath,” and you too, can give others a bath! Your kids will enjoy splashing other people with their water guns (rather than they use it on you.)  You too, can have your take on the juvenile water gun!
During the Songkran Festival, it is customary for residents to visit the wat or Buddhist temples to pay their respects to Buddha. They also pour water on the face of Buddha statues to cleanse them gently.
