What is Songkran Festival?

Rich Traditions and Symbolism

Songkran is steeped in symbolic traditions, starting with morning merit-making at local temples and offerings to Buddhist monks. As the Thai Water Festival, it coincides with the hottest time of the year, making water pouring rituals a central aspect of the celebrations. This act symbolizes purification, washing away sins, and bestowing blessings upon elders and loved ones.


Join us for a spectacular and fun-filled Songkran celebration in Hua Hin from April 13th to 15th. Participate in traditional rituals such as showing respect to elders by sprinkling water over their hands. While Songkran typically spans three days, the main water fights in Hua Hin are concentrated on April 13th.
