Are you ready to cool off from all this summer heat? Bookmark these Songkran events across Bangkok for the upcoming break.
There are generally two ways you can celebrate Songkran in Bangkok: you can walk down the streets of some of the water fighting hotspots—think Silom and Khaosan Road—or you can attend some of the more curated events happening in town. Many have DJs standing by, great deals on food and drinks, and like-minded people looking to have fun. Are you ready to get wet in the most PG sense possible?
