This month’s question:
Is Songkran the best time to go on vacation, or should we be more involved with the Thai festival?
Student at Bangkok University International
“I think we should be more involved with the Thai festivity this year. It’s the perfect opportunity for families and friends to spend quality time together and enjoy the intense water fights during the heated summer. With delicious street food, cultural performances and a raging nightlife, Songkran is the most fun celebration nationwide! Why miss it for a vacation abroad? If you don’t fancy crowds, there are countless ways to be a part of the celebration, away from all the frenzy too.”
“During Songkran, Bangkok is extremely packed with people from all over the world. Everyone wants to be a part of the occasion. I personally prefer to spend time away from the large crowds throwing water at each other. Not to mention, this is not the most environmentally-friendly occasion, with so much water wastage. If you’ve already experienced Songkran, why not try something different by taking time to travel around the world during your official days off.”
