A colourful celebration of the Songkran festival will take place this year in Bangkok. It is certainly that special holiday of the year where all banks and offices close, so people can participate in traditional activities. This holiday is usually celebrated between the 13th and 15th of April. If you are planning on timing your visit for the Songkran festival, lodging options such as AVANI Riverside Bangkok Hotel and many a business hotel in Bangkok will keep you close the all the fun and entertainment this year!

The streets will come to life with people of all ages having fun water fights and celebrating with buckets of water and even water guns. Playfully splashing water on one another is indeed exciting, but it also has a deeper denotation. The purpose of all this is to wash away all the bad luck of the past year and begin anew with hope for a better year ahead.
