Khoasan Road Songkran Will Go Ahead - With Restrictions say BMA

Bangkok, Wed Mar 29 2017
More Thai News


Following conflicting reports over the last few days in the Thai news and on social media about whether or not Songkran celebrations have been cancelled on the Khaosan Road this year, the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) have confirmed that the festival will go ahead on the popular tourist and backpacker street — albeit with restrictions.

In observance of the mourning period for the late king, the BMA has said the party on the backpacker street can involve water splashing but there will be no stage, no water guns, no powder and no sexy attire. To be fair though, many outfits simply become sexy when they are soaking wet.

The BMA’s Phra Nakorn district chief officer Suppakit Boonkhan said that they were asked to cancel the Songkran beauty pageant contest, the entertainment stages, and all loud music, reported Thai PBS.

Apparently, Khaosan business owners were warned against encouraging dancing, water guns, sexy clothes or booze.

There has been no statement yet about the city’s other large Songkran celebration, on the Silom Road.
