Songkan Festival – Thailand

We already told you about Thailand's Songkran Festival in our feature, The World Dirtiest Festivals, here are some more details about this crazy festival.

Songkran is the traditional celebration of New Year’s Day in Thailand, and the festival in Chiang Mai will carry on through April 15th this year. The main theme of the festival: water, lots of water, whether it’s being splashed on Buddhas or being sprayed from a water pistol on passers-by from the back of a tuk-tuk. Daniel Nahabedian from Matdor Network covered the event and presents a beautiful photo essay so we can experience it secondhand.
