Ring In The Thai New Year at Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui, Thailand

Thai New Year can be a pretty raucous affair. After all, how many other places are there in the world where it’s completely acceptable to throw a bucket of water at a passerby, or to shoot at a total stranger with a water pistol? But in April in Thailand, this is exactly what happens – and visitors are invited to join in the fun especially for Thai New Year at Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui.

Every April sees the arrival of Thai New Year, also known as the Songkran Water Festival. Celebrated from April 13 to 15, the festival embraces goodwill, love, compassion and thankfulness, using water as the means of expression. Originally a sign of respect, the traditional water pouring has evolved into good-natured country-wide water throwing, with locals and tourists alike roaming the streets armed with containers of water, or waiting on the side of the road with a water pistol to drench friends and strangers alike – all in the name of fun.

It continues at Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui, where a special Songkran Package is available so that guests can join in the festivities, too. The four-night package includes daily breakfast, one dinner for two at the Resort’s Thai restaurant KOH Thai Kitchen & Bar, a two-hour Songkran Celebration treatment for two at the Spa, and a special Songkran Survival Kit for guests staying on April 13, 14 and 15, 2015.

For those who want to head out and join the water-throwing fun, Chaweng town provides the biggest party atmosphere. But for those who want to take it easy during Thai New Year, or who have tired of the festivities,Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui provides the perfect laid-back escape.

And a word of warning to visitors to the Kingdom of Thailand at this time of year: you will get wet, so try and remain cool (a good dousing with water usually helps) and join in this good-natured fun with a smile and sense of humour.

Rates for the Songkran Package at Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui start at THB 27,900 per room, per night, subject to government tax and service charge. A Songkran Package is also available from April 11 to 17, 2015 at Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai.

  • I miss you with all my heart and soul...
  • A year ago I was having breakfast with those beautiful giants. An unforgettable experience. Thank you all for your beautiful comments on my previous post 💕
  • I struggled to choose a caption for this image because they say that you are what you share on social media, and so, I wanted to make it count. 
Being a 'blogger' or a 'traveler' has changed significantly over the past few years. You can’t go on Instagram without stumbling upon hundreds of carefully selected, beautifully crafted images. 
The truth is, today, things are not the same as they used to be. Travel has changed and grown. The internet has given us a chance to see the world through people's eyes and to dream of places many of us never even knew existed. 
But social media has also changed travel and the nature of blogging. Sharing my travel online has today somewhat been a constant pressure and the staging of every single photo has become the business of every instagrammer. 
I have felt the pressure of keeping up and carefully selecting what I chose to share. 
I've even promised myself that I would be a leader, not a follower, and stay far away from online traveling trends that would warp my ability to offer my readers the very best & honest tips and insider reports. 
The key...is confidence... I had the chance to make every possible mistake and figure out a way to always recover from it. Once you realize that there is life after a mistake, you gain your confidence and that, never goes away,
It goes straight to the heart and once you have that, no one and nothing can take that away from you . . I hope I’ll always have the courage to live a life that’s true to who I am and not the life that others expect of me... 💕[Click link in bio to read the full article] 💕.
