Songkran was a bit different this year... People were unsure of when the water play was allowed due to government restrictions because of the ongoing drought. However, Thursday, April 14th was by far the biggest day for water fighting in Bangkok. The Silom area was packed with thousands of people enjoying the Songkran festivities of spraying water. The photos and video below are of the Silom area but there were other areas of big water play like Khao San Road.

Friends gather at locations, usually with alcohol and fun music, have fun with the children in the sois by splashing water.
