The Thai New Year is coming soon and I was wondering where are the good place to celebrate this festival. I know Chang Mai is famous for its celebrations but I'm looking for something nearer, anybody!
In Bangers Khao San Road is the major place for water fights. It seems the police are cracking down on pickups that go around town with people and a barrel of water in the back. If you are looking for something more spiritual than a water gun then temples and public parks celebrate this festival in a more traditional way.
Another water splashing area is RCA, mainly for teenagers I would say. There, drinking dancing and splashing lasts all night. But really for the young.
