Southeast Asian short film festival debuts in Malacca this 25–29 Sept!
South East Asia is one of the most vibrant, festival-loving places on earth. No matter which season you travel you are sure to come across a festival of sorts, be it a street party, a New Year bash there are three New Years annually! Chiang Mai is one of the craziest places to witness the festivities as water is pumped from the city moat to use as ammo and trucks drive around the old town in search of any innocent stranger with an inch of dryness. Songkran is a big hit with tourists who crowd the streets to join in the wet and wild fun. Away from the frolics in temples, Buddha statues are sprinkled with water in a symbolic cleansing ritual to greet the New Year.
Have you got your camera at the ready? Also see — Southeast Asian Events Calendar. Can you imagine how exciting this festival would have been when you were a child? Three whole days of wild and watery mayhem take place across the entire country during the middle of April in Thailand. Nobody and we mean nobody!
