Also called the Water Festival, Songkran is Thailand’s largest and wettest festival, marking the beginning of the Buddhist New Year. Songkran activities in Patong take many forms, from the elegantly cultural to the totally crazy. With just a 2-minute walk to Patong Beach to celebrate Songkran, you’ll be in the midst of all of it. Since April is traditionally Thailand’s hottest month, Songkran’s famous wet and wild water fights are always front and centre. But many other activities will be going on, as well. You can simply sprinkle a statue of Buddha very respectfully with water and do a little prayer for good luck. Live music, a little Miss Songkran beauty pageant, Thai classical dancing and sand castle making are always popular highlights. Other Songkran activities will include a procession of the Phra Buddha Sihing image around Patong Beach and other cultural exhibitions. A floral parade, local art, and of course, plenty of water splashing all along Patong Beach, guarantee something for everyone.

The Andaman Beach Hotel Phuket Patong will be hosting Songkran Getaway Offers for celebrating Thai New Year in classic Thai style. For guests at The Andaman Beach Hotel Phuket Patong, a sizzling Songkran Poolside BBQ will mark the end of the Old as we ring in the New Year. On April 13th and 14th, our pool will be the best place to be on Phuket from noon to 6pm. Reserve your spot now at one of the most inviting Songkran activities in Patong, our 2022 Songkran Poolside BBQ.
