Songkran 2011 on Koh Samui

Songkran 2011 on Koh Samui

After having played Songkran with my children for a while, I took off for Chaweng to have a look what was going on there. With Dave on the back of the bike and in charge of the water gun and myself in charge of the camera we were on our way! Songkran, here we come! Time to dodge the ice water and baby powder.

It started out rather slowly in Chaweng, but around 3pm the streets really got filled and by 4pm there was a steaming party going on!

Call out 'action' and a Thai person immediately will take a pose! Great fun and it takes practice to get a cool pose! The tongue was a re-occurring pose yesterday!

Songkran can also be seen as a big wet t-shirt party, an application I don't mind too much

Some of the stranger vehicles of choice

Me too

Great tongue work

At Xin city there was a big foam party going on, plenty of options available to have fun

Battle fatigue, on the way home?

Big guns all around

About to get baby powdered

The battle field, see you next year
