Songkran - What Should I Expect?

Recommended Posts

I don't really like the idea of getting soaked with water when I'm out and about. If somebody squirts me with a water pistol, okay, I'm fine with that. I can take a joke. A waterbomb... not so much.

I'd like to know what happens in Bangkok? Will random people just throw water me? Or does nothing much happen in the capital?

On the 13th if you go outside you will get soaked, with water pistols, hoses, buckets of water, truck loads of people cruising around, individuals, kids, adults, basically everyone with anything that can hold water will be used. It's water play day to wash all last year's bad karma off you. The days after that depend on where you are in the city.

If you don't want to get soaked, and do some soaking, then it's best if you just stay inside during the daytime on the 13th.

Love "Squirting"

So the KFC ad I saw on TV where they're all squirting each other with water pistols is a little misleading?

lol...you're going to get completely wet, even if you just go out to 7/11 for some beer.

Put your phone in a zip lock bag and pretend you're about to jump in a pool if you plan on leaving your place.

Don't forget to take your "life is awesome" attitude with you or else you might not have an awesome time (or you might kill someone as well).

I followed your excellent advice and had an awesome time.

I bought my super bazooka and joined in on the fun over at Sillom. Happy days!

Had a friend of mine's son threatened in the Silom area last night with real guns by a group of young adults for getting them wet in the area everyone was playing water in..

Yes, and they shot at my friend's son. There were no police anywhere to get involved.

Make your mind up. Yesterday they had threatened him, today they shot at him. If you are going to keep living your Walter Mitty life, at least keep your stories straight.

I got drunk. It helps with the "life is awesome" attitude.
