Songkran on the streets of Patong

Songkran 2009 in Patong, Phuket

Songkran is the old Thai New Year, and in the old days (and now) the tradition was to pour water on people and Buddha images as a sign of respect. I am not sure how many years it's been more like a giant waterfight! This photo of Songkran was taken in 2009 in Patong, Phuket. If you want the biggest party and the most water, that's the place to be in Phuket!
