Celebrate Songkran, Thailand’s Spectacular New Year Water Festival, with Centara Hotels & Resorts

Make a splash in a wide range of destinations this April, including options for family-friendly vacations, fun-filled festivities, captivating cultural escapes and more, all across the kingdom

Thailand’s Songkran Festival is an extraordinary cultural occasion that every traveller should experience at least once in their life. Marking the start of Thai New Year, this annual event is held every April and was traditionally marked by the gentle ritual of pouring water over one’s elders as a mark of respect and purification.

Over the years however, it has evolved into a nationwide water fiesta, as revellers come together all across the kingdom to soak each other. As Songkran takes place in April – the hottest month of the year – this is also a wonderful way to cool down and mingle with friendly locals!
