Songkran 2012 in Khao Lak

Songkran 2012 in Khao Lak

Yesterday was the nation wide Thai New Years day or better known as Songkran and for the first time in 13 years of living in Thailand I was outside of Koh Samui during this celebration.

During the morning we stayed in the classroom, in order to complete parts of the current PADI IDC in Khao Lak.

Fairly heavy rain the moment we joined the party

It was nice and sunny during the morning but around 2.30pm when we finished classes for the day and were ready to join the party, it started to rain!

The celebrations in Khao Lak aren't as big as back on Koh Samui but it was interesting to see the complete difference in atmosphere compared to two days ago when there was a tsunami warning.

It's a good thing that in Khao Lak, just like on Koh Samui, the celebrations only last for a day! Today's it's back to business, bring on that IDC again!
