I have heard about it a lot. And now I have experienced it! The water-throwing festival was really good fun. No boundaries of ages, religions, nationalities, colour ... just pure, simple harmless (but cool) fun with complete strangers on a hot day! Just refreshing .......More

After hearing of Songkran for many years, this was my first time to the festival. AMAZING FUN! Just imagine a massive three-day water fight and you get the idea. Everyone gets involved and spirits are very high. First a little about Songkran: It is the...More

Came to Bangkok with the wife and 3 teenagers for Songkran. Silom was massive with huge crowds. We then went back to Soi 11 Sukhumvit where the water fights continued into the night. One of the best days I've ever had in Thailand. It brings...More

So fun to participate in water festival, there was a big celebration near our hotel (Centara grand at centeral world) near Central World shopping mall. It was full of fun, joy and laughter. Every 13-14-15 April. Don't miss it

Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions,
this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many.
Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi
Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the
plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a
night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's
worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers
on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop
