Songkran Khao San Road

When it comes to April, Songkran festival is what people have been waiting for. When thinking of celebrating Songkran festival in Bangkok, Khao San Road is the place that the celebrants should not miss. Every year, thousand of celebrants come to throw and splash the water wildly as the road is closed for water splashing just like some provinces in the north.

Songkran Khao San Road

That is why Khao San road is crowded with both Thais and foreigners. Khao San Road is so busy that you cannot move with the atmosphere of a water fight battlefield. People splash water to each other frenziedly and there is no exception whether you are a businessman, a visitor, or a backpacker. If you do not want to miss this memorable experience, go for it this April!
