As you probably all know now, Thailand is celebrating Songkran this week, which is the traditional Thai new year. It is basically a week of waterfights, but there are also some other traditional aspects to the festival which I will tell you about later. Yesterday I went to visit Ancient Siam (Muang Boran) in Samut Prakan for their Songkran activities. The highlight for my afternoon there was definitely the elephants who were playing waterfights with the tourists. But they also had some more sedate activities. If you are free this week then I suggest you head over there now. More information can be found at our www.paknam.com website. You will also find more pictures in our Samut Prakan Photo Album.
