Good quality video showing highlights from the Songkran water celebrations in Beach Road, Pattaya, 2013. Songkran takes place between the 13th and 19th of April each year. Beach Road runs from North Pattaya, near the dolphin roundabout, to Walking Street.
Feelings about Songkran tend to be equally split between those who love it and those who hate it. If you do not want to get wet every day you should probably either avoid taking your holiday during these days or take a trip out of town.
It lasts a lot longer in Pattaya than any other place in Thailand where it tends to last from just one to three days only.
You can see another video of Songkran from Ban Chang, where it lasts just one day, the 17th April.
