Songkran comes to a close for another year

Recommended Posts

I have been holed up in my condo for the last 8 days waiting for it to finally come to an end. I will venture out tonight after 9 pm. 
I'd say wait until tomorrow.

It should be limited to a few days but not an entire week, ice should be banned together with high powered waterguns and all waterthrowing to stop at 6pm. 
That is how it was during the first years I travelled to Pattaya. 
My fantasy is that it would be legal to open carry during Songkran and if someone water attacked you without your consent then use your imagination. Wink wink nod nod.

Jingthing is my kind of guy. Always talks sense in his posts

When is it actually 100% over in Pattaya? I get that today's meant to be the last day, but are some idiots going to push it through to Saturday? When was the last time that the 20th was a weekend day? It's not been like that for a while right?

Just wanna go to Jomtien and chill. Friend messaged me earlier saying he tried to peacefully go for food and got caked in white powder, water and had ice thrown at him lol

Someone should tell the music makers in the Nalkua/Wongamat area. 19:00/7 pm and the base thumping music is still going. I suppose they will quiet down later on after they have passed out. Amazing Thailand.

What everyone has to understand is that it is the beer bars that start the madness as early in April as they can. Its their way of making some big money over the Songkran period. So they put out the barrels of water and invite the farangs in for a beer to get wet and pissed with a scantily clad girl in shorts and T shirt. It will never change, if you dont like it get out of Pattaya for 10 days like I normally do, The Philippines.

This is it right here

 

This guy just wants to peacefully get food and return home

 

But some idiot has to stop him doing that, despite him not infringing on their fun

Please Thai government- don’t post concerns about water supply running low; meanwhile you allow 3+ days of wasting clean water during Songkron.

I retreated to my GF's village near Chiang Rai. Much more civilized than Chiang Mai. I could go out on the scooter at 8 am for shopping unmolested. From the safety of a car later, I saw quite a few scooter riders  signal the water throwers they did not want water thrown at them, and their request was observed. Possibly because they all know each other, and what goes around comes around.
