Tips for Songkran Festival

  • Songkran Festival is one of the largest and craziest festivals celebrated in the streets of Chiang Mai. However, before you come out of your safe zone to partake in this water festival, here are a few tips to enjoy Songkran Festival at its best. Choose to wear old clothes and sandals that do not let you disappoint after getting ruined in the water fights
  • Do not ride a scooter on the wet streets, as it might leave you injured later. Instead, hire a tuk-tuk or stroll through the streets
  • While walking along the moat, keep your mouth closed and wear eyeglasses in order to prevent the consumption of dirty water
  • Avoid drinking alcohol, as the crazy festival often leaves everyone strolling through the streets all day
  • Avoid splashing water on monks, infants, and elderly people, and respect the local traditions and culture.

      I will rate the trip as average. All the people we met during the trip were very nice and friendly. However, Problem started before even starting the trip when we were provided with final itinerary just a day before our travel that too late at night due to which we could not go through it. No local contact details were provided. The tour operator was not responding my calls a day before the trip. Information provided was not complete. We were travelling with 3 kids and our start of day was planned at 0500 in the morning which was not possible for us to catch. Hotel in phuket was good but hotel in bangkok was below average. Also, 2 different kind of rooms were booked for both families travelling together and we had to pay extra at the hotel to get similar category rooms. Also, extra bed for kid was not provided in bangkok hotel for which we again had to pay extra. Our visit to safari and marine world as per our schedule was supposed to be a full day trip but as per local agent, it was booked as an 8 hrs trip which was insufficient to see the park and we had to leave some of our shows.

      Trip was well organised. Bangkok tour was too short. No sight seeing other than Animal safari. Bangkok hotel was also not as good as Phuket Hotel.

      i had a family trip with the help of travel triangle from 6th Oct 2019 to 11th Oct 2019. I had chosen a package of airport pick up to airport drop.. Team helped me and provided a customized package of pattaya and bangkok. I am glad that while searching on google for a good travel agency i found this somewhere being mentioned by a traveller. Our trip was completely hassle free. The hotels provided in pattaya was very good. All pick up and drops were exactly at the time mentioned. No delay. Pattaya local guide was always available in whatsapp and was quite responsive. In bangkok the hotel was OK Ok type. Rooms and bathrooms are not that clean as expected. Good thing is Indian Whatsapp Team was always active and responsive whenever any query was posted. The only minor problem we had during the last day Safari Park tour where we were compelled to wait for 30 mins because of some miscommunication about tickets. Would have given full rating if this had not happened. Except that minor all everything was executed in a timely manner without any hurdles. Thank you Team because of which we had a very memorable trip. Gud luck n best wishes..

      This is our first foreign Trip and everything went well from the day one till i was dropped to the airport. I am highly satisfied with Break bag. They knew in and out of Thailand and their service is world class. Roy and other crew of Breakbag were contacting me every evening to explain about the next day plan and they were very supportive. I even got an update to speed boat on a nominal fee. they takecare of you very well. Highly recommended . Through out travel or before i never feel like booked through Travel triangle as never received a single call from Travel triangle . such a worst service from Travel triangle.

    FAQ's of Chiang Mai

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    Besides Thailand, Songkran Festival is also celebrated in Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Mayanmar, and Vietnam.

    The term ‘Songkran’ has been derived from the sanskrit term, ‘sankranti’, which is the name of the harvest festival celebrated in India. This festival marks the beginning of spring season and coincides with the new year as per the astrological charts. Hence, the Thai New Year- Songkran Festival is also celebrated in the month of April.

    Though every major attraction & shops remain closed during the Songkran Festival in Chiang Mai, there is still a lot to do in the city. You may choose to partake in water fights, witness the Buddha procession, enjoy a tuk-tuk tour, or wander around the streets of the city.
