Photo of the Day – Songkran in Chiang Mai

IMG_2858

A random respite from endless water fighting as a religious procession makes its way through the crowds on the streets of Chiang Mai, and on to the temple within the city walls.

Songkran is Thailand’s infamous water festival taking place in the hottest month of April, seeing in the Thai new year and offering a fun way to kep cool in the searing heat.  What was traditionally a trickle of water down the back of the neck has become all out warfare with super soakers and water cannons.  A must-do for anyone in Thailand at that time of year!
