Tourists enthusiastically engage in water splashing festivities at bars along Pattaya’s vibrant Soi 7 & 8 in the prelude to Songkran celebrations.

PATTAYA, Thailand – The spirited water play of the Songkran festival commenced on April 10 in the lively bar areas within Soi 7 and Soi 8 along the Pattaya beachfront, marking the beginning of the annual celebration. Water barrels and water guns have been strategically positioned to accommodate tourists flocking to the bars, eager to partake in the festive revelry.

Tourists are expected to immerse themselves in the traditional water play alongside fellow revelers, embracing the festive spirit as they enjoy their holidays during Songkran. The atmosphere is electrified with excitement as visitors from various countries venture out, armed with water guns, to engage in spirited water fights with bar staff and fellow travelers.
