Songkran Pattaya 16th April 2015
Fine, slightly hazy / sunny day, temps will be hot 33 – 35 deg/cel, humidity around 80%, perfect Songkran weather
Today saw the Chonburi Police crack down on high pressure, PVC pipe, water soakers, high numbers of police started patrolling all area’s around Pattaya, confiscating all PVC soakers and arresting trouble makers. The crackdown is in response to large number of complaints about unruly & aggressive behavior by foreigners who don’t know or disregard the true meaning of Songkran.
NUMBERS DOWN BY 70%
Despite really good Songkran Weather and along with the police crack down, the numbers of people involved in water play today were down by about 70% all around Pattaya, with only the main area’s going at it, even Beach Rd, in front of Soi 7 & 8, numbers were down dramatically among combatants and spectators alike and the streets were basically void of traffic the whole day, at times I wondered if the day had been cancelled because of the lack of interest by the Pattaya public, I put it all down to everyone being to tired from the last few days extreme activity and today was recovery day.
Things started to pick up a bit late in the afternoon around 4:30 pm, when energy and enthusiasm levels started to rise again, people started coming out in numbers brandishing their water soakers and started having fun again, but it was all over by about 8 pm as everyone had packed up for the day and went and did something else, that didn’t involve getting wet.
TODAY’S HOT SPOTS –
- Soi 6, 7 & 8
- Soi Boakhaow
MORE SONGKRAN PREPERATIONS
Aside from that, construction of the public water stations and sprinkler systems are underway along Beach Rd in anticipation for the 19th, Beach Rd will be closed off to all motor traffic and street stalls and live band stages will be set up to cater and entertain the huge numbers of people expected for the event.
There wasn’t a whole lot going on today! Lets see wait happens tomorrow.
