Songkran 2014 – Water Festival

We decided to create this article regarding Songkran 2014 Water Festival in Pattaya because it is probably the most popular event in the Thailand calender with Thai people and also farrang. To put it briefly this event is a giant water fight all along the beach, Pattaya Soi’s and as you can see from the following videos there is a giant party outside Central Festival Shopping Mall.

The date varies depending on what part of Thailand you are in but it falls between 13-15th of April, however, the party lasts around 5-7 days in Pattaya since it is the party capital of Thailand! A word of caution for those visiting the city during this time is that if you do not like getting wet then you should stay inside or wear a plastic bag since nobody escapes even when traveling on public transport!

We believe this is the number one resource for understanding what to expect at the Songkran Pattaya 2014 festival and from the 3 videos you can see that all day to day life stops in all areas of the city.

The 2013 Songkran was called ‘the Big Splash’ and not only did it include the water fights across the streets but also had a stage near Walking Street which had live music.

Some of my favorite things about Songkran is how everybody is laughing and random people will come up to you and rub floor on your face and everyone just lets go of their worries for the day. (See video below)

 

 

As you can see in the video below everybody is posing for photographs and nobody is shy because several people used their waterpistol on our camera and even walked up and kissed the camera! Luckily we wrapped the camera with a plastic film and made it waterproof but we have since invested in a Go Pro camera which we recommend you get if you intend on filming your Songkran holiday in Pattaya.

There is a lot of competition among farrang to have the best waterpistols such as super soakers and we even saw one man dressed like a soldier with 2 waterpistols while others just wear funny masks like Guy Fawkes or Skeletor. One final word of warning for visitors who don’t want to get too soaked, beware of the girls with big buckets of water because they often put ice in it to make it colder before they throw it on you!
