....."In Laos, people will push back the start of their own three-day pee mai Lao (Lao New Year) celebrations by one day, from the traditional April 13 to Sunday April 14.
Viroth Sundara, Minister Counsellor of the Lao embassy to Thailand, said the water festival in Laos, will be celebrated one day after Thailand's Songkran Day, which falls on Saturday.
The official public holiday in Laos, when all offices are closed, will be from Sunday to Wednesday, he added. Laos has never before changed the date of the traditional New Year holiday.
Champassak, opposite Thailand's Ubon Ratchathani province, expects Thai visitors to join the celebration and the province will invite tourism officials from Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam for the holiday festival, Mala Chanthalam, an official of the provincial Department of Information, Culture and Tourism, told the Vientiane Times.
"I believe a lot of Thai people will come here for the traditional water festival, as we've been announcing it on the radio since the start of the month," she said.
The Laos Meteorology and Hydrology Department forecast temperatures around 40 degrees Celsius during the holiday".......
We'll be there next year I hope.
