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.

    • Trip to Chiang Mai

      I am not a person who is into sharing reviews and comments but Nitin and his amazing service forced me to write.....A big thanks to Nitin our trip planner. We booked Thailand package with him and was not very sure about how everything would be managed but to our surprise everything from pick up to sightseeing, meals, honeymoon supliments and drop was very well managed. We were not required to buy local SIM as Nitin and his staff was available 24*7 on WhatsApp. We even forgot our photographs in one of the car aligned but Katy (driver) returned our pics at the hotel lobby herself....much appreciated. All the drivers and other person involved helped and guided us wen required and were friendly. I never imagined that our international trip would be so hassel free. I also need to thank Travel Triangle for the same. All I can say is I found my personal trip planner. Do go for Travel Advisor 4 u... Coral island and Chao pharaya dinner cruise

They understood our budget & gave the perfect itinerary accordingly, also made sure to adhere to all our requests. They were also really proactive in responding to any of our requests during the trip which i was really impressed with.

      Thanks to travel triangle full team and special thanks to Gurpreet and Pooja for the memorable trip to Bangkok and Pattaya. It was my first foreign trip and believe me it was amazing and one of the best trip. Everything was well organized as per our preferences. Really appreciate the whatsapp group which was active for 24×7. Hats off to the services provided it made our stay very smooth. Hotels are good..but pattaya's hotel was little far from the market where we ended up in spending a lot in transportation as dinner was not available in hotel or nearby. Specially on first day, upon arrival on Pattaya hotel at night after being so tired we had to go market to have some food though we are damn tired. Day 2 in coral island is highlight of our journey. Bangkok hotel's location was good but little small compared to Pattaya's hotel. Trip was worth of penny and yes we returned home with wonderful memories. Looking forward for more trips with your team and will also recommend travel triangle to my family and friends as well. Thank you!!☺️

    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.
