Songkran 2016

Songkran Phuket Thailand

So this was an eventful week, an earthquake in Indonesia that could be felt even here in Phuket, that resulted in an tsunami warning, that made allot of people start running for higher grounds. This all kicking of the yearly traditional songkran fesival on friday, that marks the old thai new year. What is yet to come, despite the earthquake and tsunami warning, all seems to be forgotten already, people are hitting the streets to spray each other full of water, it's an amazing time we live in... The weather is great, it's hot so a cool unexpected shower from your friendly neighbor more comes as a relief than a shock.

The Airport was back to normal withing a few hours after the tsunami warning was lifted on thursday.
