Phuket, Pearl of the Andaman, Thailand's premier tourist destination, the idyllic Jewel in the crown of Thailand’s tourist getaways is one of the world’s most desired vacation spots. A spot where a traveler’s every whim is catered to, and every exotic island fantasy can be realized. There is no better a time to visit than during the annual national celebrations for Songkran, just be prepared to get wet!
In the Thai language the term Songkran translates to “the sun is passing through a new configuration of stars” and this in turn signifies a change of season. Songkran is essentially family and community event and it is a time of the year when most Thais will travel home to be with loved ones. Lots of traditional foods will be on hand, ancestors and elders will be recognized and respected with ceremony, and those seeking merit and good luck will make donations to the local temples and monks before joining in the water throwing activities that inevitably characterize this Thai New Year Holiday.
Songkran kicks off the Buddhist New Year and also signifies the end of the dry season. Traditionally Songkran was a much more solemn occasion than it is now with the ritual washing of Buddha images and bathing, making merit at local temples but over the years the rather sedate water ceremonies have become a family and friends rowdy free-for-all of throwing water, partying during the daytime, and street fairs, concerts, dancing, and drinking during the evenings.
In the provincial capital Phuket Towne much of the annual festivities and events take place in the Saphan Hin Park area, but the beachside resorts of Patong, Rawai, Kata and Karon on the southwest tip of the island, and the Kamala, Laguna and Surin Beach areas of the northwestern part of the island each have their own events and the partying takes on varying degrees of intensity.
During the Songkran holiday period all the rest of what Phuket has to offer is still open and available. The beaches are still there for a lazy day of sunbathing, the golf courses are some of the best and most beautiful in the world, the shopping is endless, and there is Thai food of every description everywhere you turn. Families are encouraged to take in a show at the famous Fantasea or Simon Cabaret, and for some a couple of hours of raucous Thai boxing, and then a refreshing beer or cocktails in one of Patong’s many bars, clubs or discos is what makes for a perfect holiday.
Songkran is one of the busiest times of the year in Thailand and Phuket is no exception.
