VIDEO :: Songkran Fun on the Streets of Bangkok, Thailand
A short walk through the streets of Bangkok during the madness of Songkran. Fantastic fun! Iced water makes you scream when you are not expecting it! Amazingly, Nanna had just spent the last 24 hours travelling over from the UK. Not sure if it was the jetlag or the Chang, but she was well up for a party. Respect!
We stayed on the outskirts of the really manic areas. When the crowds started to build, we turned around and headed away again. Songkran in Bangkok is awesome, but slightly scary in the Koh San Road area if you’re not twenty-something and you’ve got a dodgy hip!
We would recommend thinking twice about going out at night with kids. Our experiences were mostly good, but we had a few scary moments with our boys (aged 8 and 10). Check out our Songkran with Kids post for some stories and tips about keeping your kids safe during Songkran.
