Happy New Year from Thailand!

The Thai New Year was celebrated this week between April 13-15. Highlighting Thai New Year’s celebrations is Songkran, a nation-wide water festival. Traditionally a sign of respect and well-wishing, the throwing of water has become more than just a polite sprinkling. During Songkran, people throughout Thailand crowd the streets with overflowing buckets and water pistols – anyone is fair game, nationals and tourists alike!

Who needs a water park when a whole nation can create their own?
