Plan your trip around one of Thailand’s many festivals for a truly unique vacation and give partying a whole new meaning in your dictionary.The Thai New Year in April is celebrated with a festival known as Songkran, over 3 days. The defining characteristic of this festival is the humungous country-wide water fight. No corner, street or square is safe. Water pistols, buckets, water balloons, hose pipes—everything is fair game and a formidable weapon in the hands of experienced citizens. This exuberant festival is a relief from the scorching heat of April and pure, unadulterated fun. The Yi Peng Festival is a grand lantern festival held on the full moon of the 12th lunar month (usually in mid-November), in Chiang Mai. Thousands of lit lanterns are released into the night sky, often accompanied by lighting oil lamps, candles and firecrackers, traditional dancing and lavish meals. The released lantern symbolises letting go of the ills of the past and embracing good fortune in the New Year. The first day of the Chinese lunar calendar (around February) brings a spectacular celebration in Bangkok’s Chinatown, Yaowaraj. The streets come alive with crowds dressed in red, firecrackers, dragon dancers, paper lanterns and posters, delicious feasts, parades and music. Though not a national holiday, the joy of the revellers is infectious. No one parties quite like Thailand.
