Sorry for your bad experience in the past. I did not feel that at all today, and although I saw only a few foreigners, I felt I was welcomed as a guest, never hated.  Not one negative instance today, just lots of good fun. Saw some police occasionally, but the crowd was exceptionally well behaved. It was a wonderful family event, with children, young, and old taking part. Just get out there and join in and have a good time!

 

Today's water festivities were in Naklua, and I rode my scooter this afternoon through the full length of it from the dolphin roundabout to the exit on Sukhumvit.  This is a time when you can really interact with all the people. Embrace it!

Yeah, the camera in my phone works, too.

 

'Guess you pretty much missed the entire point of this topic.  But so long as YOU didn't get hurt or see anything except what you wanted to see, I guess that's all that matters...

Yeah!!!.........Looks like a quality tourist for sure :sad:

Every time I've EVER seen violence at Songkram it's been started by idiot drunken farang's. Mind you I have never been to Pattaya for it & this is the reason........ repeat, idiot farang's spoiling it. :angry:

Puleeez : Its always the foreigners starting the trouble ??? So because  you have not seen any Thais starting  problems , then you think you have proved a negative.

As I stated "I've never been to Songkram in Pattaya" I have lived in CM & Lamphun (7 years) & only ever seen farangs starting a problem. I'm not wearing blinkers I simply choose to revel somewhere that doesn't draw as much <deleted> Thai or Farang as other places seem to.

Wow! I'm a farang and I find it hard to believe that any foreigner that comes here and thinks that during this celebration the police will be readily available to help them when they are putting themselves in harms way. I suggest farangs wake up and realize where they actually are and also there are many places in the world including the western structured world that provide for inadequate police protection during celebrations. When I do attend functions I usually see stupid conduct by many Thai's and I usually visitors and local farangs doing equally stupid things so I don't really feel sorry for people who put themselves in harms way in a foreign country expecting the same protection they don't actually have in their own country. I believe Thailand operates under its own set of rules and is growing at the pace it can grow at now. I support the police every way I can including other local governments like the fire departments and other areas like schools and hospitals. I don't want anything in return and I can assure everyone on this forum that I have donated over a million bht to my community here and I have requested all of my farang friends to participate none of which have and that I have requested my Thai friends to do so and 4 of them have donated to my suggested causes such as police safety and they have to the sum of 100,000 bht. I guess I'm tired of certain people complaining about services here. If you live here than help your community to make it better!

To me that picture summarizes just how far out of whack Songkran has gone.  A frickin' *firehose*???  What could possibly go wrong?
