Ring (and Splash) in the New Year

Experience Thailand at its most festive during Songkran, the traditional New Year's celebration that falls in mid-April here and in many other corners of Southeast Asia. All over the country, people make offerings at temples, pay their respects to elders, and attend all manner of parades and other fetes. Water is also at the heart of the Songkran experience: poured on respected elders and monks, self-applied in ritualistic cleansing, and--most uproariously--blasted upon one and all in public water fights. Prepared to get wet?
