Songkran Celebrations of the North
Celebrate the Thai New Year in uniquely Lanna style.
At Anantara, we invite you to immerse in local culture. Here in Chiang Mai, the Thai New Year is celebrated, as in much of Southeast Asia, with lots of water splashing, but also uniquely Chiang Mai customs. The city’s many temples buzz with families visiting to make merit, the Old City hosts a traditional Buddha procession, and the Miss Songkran pageant showcases the beautiful costumes and parasols of the north.
