    If you are looking to experience water everywhere, loud music and loads of festivities for free then head over to Silom and walk down the street. You can veer off into side streets to find quieter spaces and loads of restaurants and bars celebrating. Won't go again, but worth seeing it.

    Having experienced the vibrant and lively atmosphere of Khao San Road during the Songkran Festival, I can confidently say it's an experience like no other. The entire street transforms into a water-filled playground, where locals and tourists alike come together to celebrate the Thai New Year with water fights, traditional ceremonies, and endless festivities.

    The energy on Khao San Road during Songkran is infectious, with music blasting from every corner, colorful water guns spraying in all directions, and people dancing and laughing in the streets. It's a true celebration of unity and joy, where cultural traditions blend seamlessly with modern revelry.

    One of the most memorable aspects of the festival is the sense of camaraderie among participants. Strangers become friends as they engage in friendly water battles, sharing laughs and good vibes throughout the day. It's a time when everyone, regardless of background or nationality, comes together to embrace the spirit of Songkran.

    Of course, no review of the Songkran Festival on Khao San Road would be complete without mentioning the delicious street food stalls lining the street. From traditional Thai dishes to international favorites, there's something to satisfy every craving as you take a break from the water festivities.

    Overall, the Songkran Festival on Khao San Road is an unforgettable celebration that embodies the essence of Thai culture – vibrant, joyous, and full of life. Whether you're a first-time visitor or a seasoned traveler, experiencing Songkran on Khao San Road is an absolute must."

    Loy Krathong - Floating a Basket:

    a familiar tune
    breaking through the morning news
    Oh yes,
    it’s loy krathong

    humming along the tune
    ah, I should remember
    to put a thanksgiving basket
    onto the river
    for the goddess of water

    as the candles flow
    may the light
    in your heart
    continues to glow

    I went to this cafe for an escape room games. It was my first playing escape room games. It was fun and challenging. The staff was friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this place for any one who want some escape room experience.

    China Town has tonnes of street vendors and other stores that make it worth while to see if your in the area. It is similar to other China towns I have been to with vibrant colors and bustling streets

    This is unusual for a European as the race starts at midnight to avoid the heat and traffic during the day. Still around 30C at the start with heat radiating from the roads in the city areas. Nice size with 4000 runners and well organised. Toilets - bring your own paper! and in very hot buses 300m from the start. Plenty of free water and gatorade. The start is a bit chaotic as the pacers start in front of the runners (no corrals) so you will have to chase them down. First 5K takes you out of the Grand palace and city then it is a straight-ish highway for 30K out and back so not much to see. Plenty of space though, never feels crowded from the start but the heat gets to you if you are not used to it. Water every 2K is helpful. Nice noisy finish and medal. Enjoyed it but it is harder than the elevation and profile suggest due to the heat, humidity and timing. One for a bit of fun rather than a time! I ran 4.30 with a total melt down last 20K (1.51 first half) having done a 3.16 in the colder UK 4 weeks earlier! Take it easy!
