If you haven’t known, Songkran is the biggest festival in Asia which draws thousands of gay men from all over the world to the beautiful country of Thailand, aka the Land of Smiles.
Songkran celebrates the traditional Thai New Year, which falls in the month of April, and is marked by the splashing of water. The act signifies purification and washing away of bad luck.
So yes, you will be getting soaking wet the moment you step out of your hotel or hostel. People on the streets will be randomly ‘attacking’ you with buckets of water as well as jets from water guns.
During this time of the year, you can expect all the gay clubs, bars and saunas to be packed to the brim with beautiful men in their low-cut singlets and tightest speedos. There are also hotel parties, pool parties, and various themed events held at convention centres too.
Now, are you ready for some of the eye candies spotted at this year’s Songkran?
