Children of Songkran

Splash! Whoosh! Sploosh!

In the middle of April each year, Thailand goes all out crazy in a wild water battle. The Songkran holiday is the Thai New Year. Water flies through the air. It soars out of buckets. Streams shoot of out water guns. Super soakers roam the streets.

While yesteryear’s Songkran celebrations may have been more serene, today’s Songkran festivities are a non-stop party. Have a look at some of Thailand’s children and its youngest visitors ringing in the New Year with a splash.
