The 18th of April is Nakluea’s day to steal Pattaya’s thunder and usurp the Songkran heavy weight championship title.   10’s of thousands converged onto Nakluea Rd today for Songkran celebrations along the 3 km strip and the bars and footpaths were packed with merrymakers and party hounds.

As a prelude to tomorrow’s grand finale, The Nakluea crowd was insanely enthusiastic and well behaved with white plaster and talcum powder being the order of the day and water dowsing second choice, many people resembled walking plaster boards as the Songkran festivities gathered momentum and smiles ruled the day.
