Songkran madness

Recommended Posts

Which are the dates best avoided in April in Patts. Thinking of a quiet period on Koh Lanta before returning to  P. Suggestions please

Has it started already? 😫

 

I find it best to leave here on the 15th as it is generally finished everywhere else by then and so is fairly safe. And then I dont come back before the 20th at the earliest.

 

It's also a good time to travel abroad. April can be a good month for tourism in many countries: longer days, not too cold, not too hot, new season vegetation.

Avoid 13 - 19 April, especially the 19th.

Is it all over by the 19th and no more water throwing on the streets? Does it always start on the 13th or do you get some idiots trying to start even earlier or finish even past those dates?

It is not over by the 19th. The 19th is a war zone. Yes you get some idiots starting on the 12th.

Yes 100% agree. 19th is the main day in Pattaya, it all starts on the 12th every year on soi's 7 and 8 and soi Bukeau.

No, that's the 20th. This is why I never come back before the 20th.

Leave on the 11th and come back on the 21st and you will miss it all....

Water throwing does not stop until the sun comes up on the 20th so the hours between 1 AM on the 20th and about 6-7 AM on the 20th there is still water throwing.....

I come home to Pattaya on the afternoon of the 20th every year.  Never a problem.

They extended Songkran by a day this year.  I believe it will start on April 12.
