When you will plan to visit Thailand in April pack your luggage wisely and don’t forget to take the water gun. Why? First of all, April is the hottest month of a year. Secondly, exactly in April, all the country starts celebrating the Songkran the start of the solar year. In easier words, all the country is celebrating a New Year (not in December, how we got used), so April is the first month of the new year in Thailand. The brightest and most beautiful celebration takes place in Bangkok; local people dress in their best clothes and go to the temples. After temples, the real celebration of the Songkran is moved to the streets. People start splashing each other with water, and a huge water fight starts. So if you do not want to get wet better stay indoors. But our advice is to join this wild fiesta and have fun!
