Tips to fully enjoy Songkran in Thailand

– In the morning, make a merit and listen to preachment for blessing as it is New Year celebration
– To purify Buddha or another statue, the water should not pour right on the head, rather to other parts of the statues
– The custom of pouring water on elders’ (above 60 years old) hand, is to show them your respect and ask them for New Year blessing
– To celebrate Songkran in Thailand water should be lightly sprinkled. Water used in the festival must be clean, adding fragrance is optional. Dirty and/or cold water are not allowed, as well as to mixed water with ice, sweet basil seeds, sage, nor with dyeing color
– Avoid using high-pressured water gun or splash water aggressively to others

– Women should not wear tight and overly exposing clothes, including ones that are light in colors because it can lead to sexual harassment
