Songkran Festival

The entire length of this backpacker heaven turns into an all-day water-fight zone (10am-late) for the duration of the festival, packed with huge crowds of teenagers and international backpackers. Being one of the city’s main centers for nightlife, expect plenty of alcohol served from the bars lining the street as well as music from live DJs and lots of dancing. Here is also great for who do not like to be rubbed by white powder on their faces. There are police checkpoints set up at both ends of the street to confiscate bottles, cans and the white powder.

But don’t worry though, you can buy all the alcohol you’re likely to need inside one of the many bars that stay open throughout the festival.

Largest and busiest mall in Bangkok, Thailand

A word of advice though: beware of your belongings. If not necessary, keep your valuable at your hotel will be great advice. Be careful on the tiled floors that become like ice rinks because it’s a fairly common sight to see inebriated young tourists slipping, sliding and ending up with their whisky bucket all over the floor. Last, make sure you protect your smartphone with a waterproof plastic wrap. Get yours for free at FU Bar, Bar Next Door, Mulligan’s, Superflow Beach Club and Bua Sa-ard.

5. Songkran at Silom Road 2016

Date : 13 – 15 April 2016
Ticket Free: Free

Songkran at Silom, the heart of the central business district, stretching from Sala Daeng to Narathiwat intersections, the entire 5 km length of this street (MRT Silom/BTS Sala Daeng), transforms into what is likely the largest and wildest crowd celebrating Songkran. The road will be closed down from noon and the water war starts from 2pm until late.

The street gets very busy with university students, young adults and the city’s sizeable LGBT population taking part in the massive water-fight. The reason why here is the most crowded is that it’s most likely not so hot as other places. There is a head cover from the Sun by BTS railway. You won’t get much sunburn here.

For those less inclined to get wet, the view of the crowd from the overarching BTS stations can serve as quite a spectacle. Relatively means that you should still carry any valuable items in a plastic bag. From up there you can witness the full extent of the game: a huge colorful crowd of smiling young Thais slowly walking between two rows of stalls selling water guns, food, soft drinks and of course, lots of beer.

The highlight is to spot the fire trucks ambushed at each intersection with their incredibly powerful water hoses. The crowd is actually delighted to be hosed down as the heat can reach 40˚C in the sun.
