Phuket life; Getting ready for Songkran!

So this year I am getting to know a whole ne festival – Songkran. This is an important event on the Buddhist calendar, which marks the beginning of the traditional Thai New Year. According to the Thai calendar we’re in year 2557 already…
The Thai New Year is a water festival that takes place over 3 days, with a huge water fight on the last day. At least – so I’m informed.

Anyway – the other day I got out and about to find some good water guns for us. I found some {which according to Ruben are way too small} and so I’m ready to experience a new tradition.

 

Really looking forward to the 3rd day, which is on Sunday 13 April! If any of the seasoned Songkran’ers can give me tips how to survive this water extravaganza – I am more then happy to hear them 🙂
