Songkran Festival Koh Tao
Songkran Festival starts tomorrow!
Songkran is the traditional Thai New Year. This is the time for Thais to pay homage to Buddha images, clean their houses, and sprinkle water on their elders in a show of respect. Anyone who ventures out on the streets is likely to get a thorough dousing of water, all in good fun, but also quite welcome at the peak of the hot season. So being the fun seeking people we are here at Big Blue you can pretty much count on there being a rather large party here tomorrow. Anyone arriving tomorrow please don’t wear anything you don’t want to get wet! There’ll be discounts for ladies who forget to wear their brassieres! There’ll be savage water dousings for chaps in speedos!
We’ll be closed and there will be no news that day. I’m sure there will be a fury of embarrasing photos the next day.
