Description

It's New Year! So let's throw loads of water over each over! So goes the thinking behind this wonderfully joyous celebration that marks Thai New Year. Of course activities take place all over the country, not just in Bangkok. So what can you expect? Well, apart from gangs of Thais roaming the street looking to soak each over it's also a time of year to visit a Buddhist temple, to pay respect to one's elders by visiting them and to clean Buddha images too. Plenty of the religious observances are public, so it's fine for tourists to visit these if they behave respectfully. Otherwise, get some water pistols and join the fun!
