Songkran

Recommended Posts

Resident gentlemen,

with utmost disgustI I watched a variety of clips showing current Songkran activities in Khrungthep inner city . What has been an ancient Thai tradition has obviously perverted into kind of Carneval do Brazil tourist style . To my observation a lot of the partcipants seemed to be of Chinese nationality , would you agree ?

I went to a local version of Songkran at the Lao Temple on Sunday, and whilst it was a traditional, respectful, ceremonial event, there was some powder on my face when I left. Good times had by all.

I wouldn't want to comment on the nationality of the participants.  However it has definitely became perverted.  I don't want to participate, but I can see why these peons  enjoy their day in the sun.  It's entirely understandable in my view.  And Farangs are perfect targets.
