Songkran is the Biggest Water Fight Festival in Thailand. Songkran in Thailand 2017 is officially observed between the 14th and 17th of April 2017 (three days national holiday), although in reality, celebrations often last the entire week.
The Songkran Festival is also known as the Thai New year or Thailand Water Festival, originally celebrated as a way for the Thai people to sprinkle water on their family members and elders for good fortune and pay their respects to images of the beloved Buddha. Today, the festival has transitioned into 3 days of water play fun, splashing locals and visitors alike with buckets of water, water hoses and super soakers as they gather in the streets. Songkran or Thai New Year is the biggest and most memorable water festival you’ll ever experience when in Thailand.

The residents can be seen splashing water on one another for just one day on the streets of some Thai towns hence you will have to check before you travel. Other towns carry on with the festival merriment by extending them into one week of ceremonies, concerts, water fights and other revelries.
Make sure you fight with clean water which may be either tap water or those popular large jugs of water. And ensure that the water is not hot. Although water of room temperature should be fine, but depending on how hot it is outside, pouring ice-cold water on the people should not be a problem as long as you are not striking them ice cubes.
