Songkran Water Festival in Bangkok is just as much fun as everywhere else in Thailand. This fun-packed celebration is all about getting wet and wild in the city streets! Having fun is a big part of Thai culture, having fun with water in the scorching heat is an experience unique to Thailand. Songkran takes place during the hottest month of the year in April; it sees the entire country go bananas in friendly water fights and street parties that last nearly a week.
April can be a fairly quiet month at Novotel Bangkok IMPACT. But visitors need not worry, we have something fun in store for our guests. We bring Songkran and Thai culture to you and you can stay dry. Experience the quiet side of Songkran Water Festival in Bangkok and enjoy good food, good drinks in the company of friends and family.
By definition, Songkran Water Festival in Bangkok is a 3-day holiday. In other parts of Thailand it can last up to a week. It is Thailand’s way of celebrating New Year, usually celebrated from April 13 to 15. Songkran, like other water festivals in the world, is about family and religious worship. Thailand is rich in many beliefs and symbolisms and as in most cultures water symbolizes “cleansing” or “rejuvenating”. Throwing water on others washes all the misfortunes and struggles in the previous year and refreshes everything for the brand new year.
No matter what your preference, just remember that your experience at our hotel is our number one priority.
Enjoy your stay at Novotel Bangkok IMPACT!
