    Popular Thai Festivals and Celebrations

    The Thailand Songkran Holiday & Water Festival

    Songkran is the celebration of the traditional Thai New Year, celebrated annually for the past centuries. This holiday is a celebration of love and goodwill, compassion and thankfulness, with water as its means of expression. Hence, since the past century, this holiday got to be also referred to as the Water Festival.

    “Songkran” is a Sanskrit word that means to move or step forward. The three-day celebration of Songkran starts on the New Year’s Day of the Brahmin solar system. In Thailand, it is fixed on the 13th to 15th of April yearly. The 13th is called the Maha Songkran or the Grand Songkran and has also been declared by the government as the Day of the Senior, or Elderly, as an official appreciation for the senior population for their contributions to the family and country. The 14th is designated as Family Day as a celebration of family love and togetherness. This holiday is a government-declared extended public holiday to give the people the chance to go to their hometowns for the celebration with family reunions and merry-making.

    Songkran was integrated into the Thai Water Festival. Water in Thai tradition is spiritually purifying of bad luck or grievances and endows blessings of fortune and happiness. Originally practised as collecting the cleansing waters for the Buddha statues to bless village elders and family members, trickling the waters over their shoulders. As in many traditional religious or cultural festivals, the celebrations shift to enjoyment and fun.

    Thailand Grand Sale -Annual Discount Shopping in Bangkok

    The Thailand Grand Sale in Bangkok is a yearly shopping mega-event between June and August, when you see hordes, yes, really hordes of crowds in the city’s shopping districts lugging several red shopping bags, the motif for participating malls and shops.

For this event, what to take to Thailand will only be your credit and debit cards!

    Chiang Mai Flower Festival

    The colours that make up the vibrant Thai culture come from, among other things, its flowers, in all parts of this country. Every February, you can get this exciting opportunity to be surrounded by blooms of all sizes, colours, shapes, scents and flavours in the Chiang Mai Flower Festival. Chiang Mai is the biggest city in Northern Thailand and the capital of Chiang Mai Province. The city is nicknamed the “Rose of the North” for its gorgeous blooms and these are put on display during the Flower Festival with its parades of stunning floral design floats and floral images. The festival was originated in the 197os and had grown from a local event to one of global proportions, with guests from various countries enjoying this family-friendly event of parades, food markets, musical concerts, marching bands, among others.

    Starting on the first Friday of February all through the weekend ending Sunday evening, at several parts of the city are various events and activities to celebrate this festival among the local folk and guests from other parts of Thailand and the rest of the world.

    Koh Phangan Full Moon Party

    The Full Moon Party started with a group of tourists sometime in 1985 who found the most beautiful moon in Koh Phangan. They arranged to have a party to celebrate the full moon on Haad Rin, a crescent-shaped beach on the island. Since then, crowds reaching up to 30,000 people go to the island each month to celebrate the full moon party which has become a global full-blown event starting at dusk. By nighttime, the event turns frenetic with dancing to all genres of music, with performers like jugglers and fire-eaters entertaining the crowds including colourful fireworks displays.
