Songkran Festival

If you’ve booked Songkran Festival accommodation at Novotel Bangkok Ploenchit Sukhumvit, you’ve got one big decision out of the way. Our location makes getting to the city’s main spots for splashing about and other holiday festivities a snap. We’re downtown and directly adjacent BTS SkyTrain – Ploenchit Station, so getting to various districts and neighbourhoods is quick and convenient.

Here’s our list of 6 Ways to Have Songkran Fun in Bangkok:

  1. Get wet and wild in Kaosan Road

Kaosan Road is one of the most famous spots for Songkran splashing. It’s especially popular with foreign visitors, but many Thais likewise make their way to the city’s first backpacker haven. Be prepared, though, for some of the city’s more raucous water warfare.

  1. See it all in slippery Silom Road

Since you’ve booked Songkran Festival accommodation at Novotel Bangkok Ploenchit Sukhumvit, you’ve got the SkyTrain to make Songkran fun in Silom especially convenient. It takes only 20 minutes or so. Among Silom’s many highlights are famous Patpong night market and Soi Thaniya (Little Japan).

  1. Slosh till you drop at CentralWorld

Along with huge crowds of revellers who gather every Songkran outside the mall and in surrounding Ratchaprasong district, CentralWorld is also site this year of another gCircuit Songkran event, the biggest gay party in Asia.

  1. Test Thai food at CentralEmbassy

Celebrate Thai New Year at CentralEmbassy, enjoy traditional Thai food and snack with fresh drink that will cool you down from sun heat. So let get going to to the party! Located near Novotel Bangkok Ploenchit Sukhumvit.

  1. Feel the froth at a foam party

Foam parties aren’t all that common but they’re very fun. You should try it at least once. Nightclubs are probably your best bet for finding one, and during Songkran any entrance fees are sometimes lowered or waived altogether.

  1. Get broadsided in a boat at a floating market

If you don’t mind heading outside the city, visit a floating market. During Songkran, some markets become like the scene of a naval battle with no one on the canal or docks safe from bombardment.

Choosing the right Songkran Festival accommodation is a win. You can easily get to all these places and more when you stay with us at Novotel Bangkok Ploenchit Sukhumvit.
