    Songkran should be advertised simply as 1 week of carnage. It is what it is. If you partake in it, expect to encounter alcohol, boisterous behaviour and anything else a disorganised rally entails. Every year they put out the warnings and threats yet the death toll remains high and related chaos ensues. Some of my mates love it some hate it. Same as NY in the UK.

    Any adult who has been near a Songkran event will know what to expect and therefore make the choice, go or stay away.

    I loved it back in 2015 and we had a great time. I would go again but I wouldn't be driving a car or riding a bike.

    I'm in Bkk and it's lovely! Very little happening where I am, a few folk along the side of the road in Thonglor and one truck spotted.

    Went out for a meal last night that involved a drive along Sukhumvit - the small bar area at the top of Soi22 was having a party and saw others walking along the road looking like they had been in a water fight. I guess Soi4 was heaving as there was a jam there as cars were queuing to turn into the Soi. But that was it.

    I've experienced it in different towns and loathe it. In Kalasin however it was really nicely done and I fully enjoyed it.

    Has anyone noticed that this year Songkran has been very quiet with not much activities going on.

    Same old story. What chance have you got when nearly 400 adults take part in such a childish and dishonest display. (as below)

    'National police deputy chief Pol General Weerachai Songmetta, meanwhile, presided over an oath-taking rite in Samut Prakan province in which 380 drunk-driving offenders vowed not to repeat the offence, before listening to a monk’s sermon. They were then brought to court for legal action.'
