If you are in Khao Lak next Friday you are in for a treat - and a soaking! No, I'm not forecasting rain, it's Songkran. Lower key than other places and much safer than some, from about 11am to 5pm Songkran is a procession of trucks and other vehicles parading up and down Highway 4 through Khao Lak with water fights taking place between passengers on the trucks, buses, cars, motor bikes, cycles and crowds lining the roadside. If it moves, it gets wet!
To get some tips for those lucky ones who will be there, local travel company Khao Lak Land Discovery have included a page in their excellent Blog which they will keep updated including pictures taken on the day. As well as this blog there are other very useful ones (some in German) such as sending items home by post and video links of tours and an Impressions of Khao Lak Trip Wow slideshow.
