I HATE SONGKRAN FESTIVAL THAI NEW YEAR, A FESTIVAL FOR RETARDED ADULTS WHO LIKE TO PLAY LIKE STUPID KIDS
Songkran water festival is coming and one full week of hell is coming !
Songkran water festival in Thailand is the worst time of the year with Loy kratong festival for people who do not want to join the events.
At least for Loy kratong lovers festival you just have to avoid some areas and it’s only 1 day a year, but it’s difficult to avoid Thailand Songkran festival that can sometimes last 1 full week as in Pattaya area or
Songkran festival is the Thai new year and what is boring is that people throw water to each other, and even to people who do not want to receive any because they are going to work or somewhere where it is not possible to arrive completely wet or full of powder.
Yes, it’s even worst than just water because people playing with water often mix it with talc powder to be sure that you won’t be just wet but also completely white and dirty.
Another problem with Songkran festival is that people get more and more violent and guns more and more powerful, so people send to each water at high speed that can sometimes hurt, for example in the eyes.
Also during Songran water festival it is very dangerous to drive in Thailand because as most of local people are on vacation, they have time to get drunk all day long, and drive drunk of course. With the international new year, Songkran Thai new year is the most dangerous week off the year, with the highest death toll.
As you see, there are so many reasons to avoid Songkran in Thailand, and there is only one positive point, it is that Bangkok the capital city of Thailand is almost desert with most inhabitants going upcountry to visit the family.
So enjoy Bangkok during Songkran 2012 and avoid Pattaya, especially on April 19th because it’s the worst Songkran day in chonburi, a day when it’s almost impossible to go anywhere without being wet.
