Chiang Mai is one of Thailand's focal points during Songkran Festival. You can expect for the most enjoyable and wettest water fight here as serious water splashing scenes can be seen everywhere. Among all,
Tha Pae Gate and the area around the city's moat are the most popular free-firing zones. Do not forget to get yourself ready and fully geared up with water equipments before enter the areas!
Apart from the thrilling actions, Chiang Mai also has a more conservative Northern Style Songkran Celebration. Take a chance to visit religious ceremonies at
Wat Phra Sing and Wat Phratat Doi Suthep -- give food to monks, pour some Thai scented water on a Buddha image and build sand stupas to bring good fortunes to your life.
