Soon after the New Year holiday, Thailand’s New Year will begin. Every year, on April 13, Thailand’s New Year-Water, in most parts of Thailand, including Bangkok, wishes the New Year from April 13 to 15, Pattaya from 17 to 19, and some places even more!
Take Bangkok as an example. This period of time is a public holiday and many shops will rest. The 13th and 14th of this year happen to be Saturdays and Sundays. If you go to JJ Weekend Market, many shops may close because shop owners will go home for the New Year. The same is true of the Asiatique night market. Large shopping malls such as MBK, Siam Paragon and Central World will open as usual. If you want to shop, it will not be a big problem. During this period, should we pay attention to some what when choosing hotels? First of all, the 13th-15th is Thailand’s Water Splashing Festival. Traffic in Bangkok will be very smooth and there will be few traffic jams. However, it will not be easy to intercept taxis, because everyone will take taxis to splash water, especially Khao San and Silom Road. BTS can be said to be the most important means of transportation, so the most important thing in choosing a hotel is to stay close to the hotel at BTS Station, otherwise you may waste a lot of time! Secondly, do not choose hotels in Silom District and Khao San District, because then these two districts will be closed and have trouble getting in and out, and these two districts are serious battlefields. If you pass through the battlefields with luggage, you will become drowned in water in minutes. Of course, if you really want to play splashing water and can splash it as soon as you get out of the hotel, they are in the battlefield:
