Sounds quite a selfish attitude!

Nope. Very sensible attitude.

A so called festival where participants are encouraged to throw missiles at moving motor vehicles has no place in the civilised world.

 

As we are referring to Thailand it probably is ok then.

Obviously trying to break the record for road deaths during this stupid festival. I wish it could be banned indefinitely.

Just hope we can travel somewhere to get away from the madness.

Here's a chance to cancel it permanently.

Songkran is the most stupid insane new year celebration I have ever seen especially in Pattaya. Please Covid help... 

Agreed Oldie, planned Seim Reip, Cambodia last year for a old traditional Songkran, but cancelled, used to be fun for two days not that long ago.....

But having a bucket load of ice cold water thrown over you while riding your scooter along a public road on your way to work is not epic. I don't think anybody is trying to stop the fun they just want it to be sensible and avoid accidents and deaths caused by some overly stupid participants. 

Mainly Farang idiots.

The stupidest event in the world;  “Thai Culture” ;

Waste of water, waste of alcohol and waste of lives on the roads.  Give a medal to these guys in power ... Please

it's their idea of having a good time.  but most of the idiots are drunken farangs.

According to Sanook News, Deputy Public Health Minister Sathit Pitutecha has said that if people continue to follow the preventative measures put in place to limit the spread of the virus, then the Songkran water festival will go ahead as normal in April.

 

Who would believe that?

 

They announced two weeks ago to shut down schools in provinces without sick people. 

 

   It was decided on a Sunday evening at 9 pm. 

 

How would they know now if the numbers are still low in April?

 

   The fortune tellers must make good money these days. 

 

 

555555 they do hence the project for prisiners to become fortune tellers .

No way man; 

 

The idea of having a good time is very subjective. Although I respect this silly game, I have no sympathy for that way of risking lives, including children or wasting water they haven’t.

 

Never saw farangs drunk or not in the two houses in villages who I own; One in North Chiang Mai and other one in Chantaburi... the deaths are the same.

Thailand will be able to celebrate Songkran this year, providing the number of coronavirus infections continue to fall, the deputy health minister has said.

 

And if it doesn't, it won't.

Probably a good idea to not ride a motorbike on those days and take another form of transportation.
