Songkran April 13th 2008 Photos

Sunday 13th was Songkran day in Phuket. I think for next year I'll have a camera in a housing - yesterday was another "trying to snap photos out the car window" day.

Hope you can make it for Songkran in 2009! Book your trip now!

Songkran 2008 in Thailand

Songkran 2008 - Thai New Year - 13th to 15th April 2008.

Be there!

It's a long way off, but now's the time to book hotels and arrange travel. The festival is celebrated all over Thailand, but is especially big in the Northern city of Chiang Mai. In Phuket, where I live, the watery fun is just for 1 day, which is quite enough thank you!
