CHOOSE THE BEST SONGKRAN FESTIVAL HOTEL FOR YOUR WATER BATTLE
Find the best Songkran festival hotel in Silom!
Songkran, sometimes known informally as Thailand Water Festival, marks the Thai new year and is by far the country’s biggest holiday. The annual three-day celebration occurs at the height of summer from 13 to 15 April, although celebrations and events can extend for a time before and after the official period.
Water is central to Songkran celebrations and all the splashing represents a washing away of sins and bad luck. Indeed the holiday is known outside Thailand primarily for such revelry. But Songkran entails more than familiar scenes of street-side soakings and water-gun fights. It’s also a time for family reunions and temple visits. Important in this regard is rod nam dum hua, a far more sedate tradition in which young people sprinkle fragrant water into their elders’ palms and request blessings for the year ahead.
As to the more wet and wild Songkran traditions, however, Silom Road is definitely where Thais celebrate the holiday with brio. In fact, a stretch of the road is closed each day during afternoon and evening hours when the area becomes an officially designated water-splashing zone. Further making Silom one of Bangkok’s best spots for Songkran is easy access to public transport via BTS SkyTrain and MRT underground. Therefore, prepare your water guns and look for a perfect Songkran festival hotel.
For the same reason, Novotel Bangkok Fenix Silom is an excellent Songkran festival hotel for your Songkran fun. You’ll be nearby BTS Surasak Station only two stops from Saladaeng Station, right at the centre of the craziness. Or, you can take a tuk-tuk from the hotel and reach Saladaeng in about 10 minutes – if you don’t mind getting very wet on the way.
