Songkran festival at Busaba

Celebrate Thai New Year at Busaba

Thailand’s most famous festival Songkran is held to celebrate Thai New Year, a time to come together to share food and symbolic traditions.

Also known as the Thai water festival, Songkran is about cleaning, purification, and having a fresh start. Houses are cleaned; Buddha statues are carried through the streets in a procession and are washed with flower-scented water. Elders are honored by respectfully pouring water over their hands.

Although the true Songkran tradition is to sprinkle water on people, in Thailand its become popular to get into big public water fights to take the “blessings” to another level! Splashing people with water signifies the washing away of bad thoughts and actions. It brings them good luck in the new year.
