Songkran runs between 13 and 15 April, and festivities can be found countrywide.
There are usually parades of flower-laden floats in Khon Kaen in eastern Thailand, and waterfights on Bangkok's Khao San Road. The northern city of Chiang Mai celebrates with the most gusto. It’s practically pandemonium – people literally flood the streets.
Alas, this year there will a lot less water, but a traditional soft sprinkling (rather than using water guns) is permitted, and there will be more focus on the festival's traditional side, with people encouraged to wear Thai dress or colourful floral print shirts. While water fights are banned, you can still pour water over Buddhist statues.
