Songkran is the most celebrated day in Thailand. Also known as the water festival, it is a lot of fun with tourists and locals joining in the festivities.
The annual event marks the start of the traditional Thai new year and officially lasts for 3 days starting on the 13th April, but up in the northern regions, the partying can go on for a week. In Phuket we are more practical, and it only lasts for one day.
November is a pleasant time to visit, it’s quiet and the temperature perfect. The rains are nearly over, the sea bids farewell to the rolling surf and return to a calm oasis, and even if the skies are gloomy there’s plenty of sunshine in between showers to enjoy time at the beach.
