What to Bring

– Water guns / Super soakers / Buckets of Water

– Extra clothes and underwear (You’ll get soaked through)

– Waterproof case for your phone, camera, and wallet

– Sunglasses (Don’t bring branded ones, as they might get ruined!)

– Cold medicine (You might catch a cold as you will be wet all day & night.)

Keep in Mind

– Learn the phrase “Sawadee Pee Mai!” which is wishing you Happy Thai New Year.

– There’s no way to avoid getting wet. Just accept it and have fun.

– However, if you want to stay dry, stay inside the shopping malls and hotels.

– You might get powder thrown on you. It stings if it gets in your eyes, so be sure to wear sunglasses!

– Monks are highly respected in Thailand, do now throw water at them.

Best spots for water flight in Bangkok.

Khaosan Road: This historical center of the backpacker tourist area is turned into a massive water battleground during Songkran. Be prepared for a large crowd here!

– Silom: The most popular Songkran spot for Thai locals. The highlight here is to get in front of red fire trucks which will spray you with their powerful water hoses.

– Siam Square: There are various events and EDM festivals during Songkran here which make you want to dance and water fight at the same time!

– RCA (Clubbing area): If you love partying, RCA is the place to go during Songkran at night! It offers the best overall experience combining clubbing and water fight.
