My Songkran started in Phuket on Bangla rd, flew up to Bangkok April 13th and got checked in to my hotel, and then it started. First went to Robertson’s in Bang Rak and got a big water gun, bought some beer and sat in the...More
this was never on my bucket list but it should’ve been! such a great experience and the best way to interact with thai locals. everyone basically soaks each other with waterguns or buckets. doesn’t matter who you are, you’ll get soaked this weekend.
You can spend the whole day here, walk around, drink, spray anyone you want (even saw some spray the police and they were cool with it). Everyone is in a crazy joyous mood. There’s music blasting, people dancing, drinking and having one massive street party....More

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around
Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
