The Traditional Thai New Year 2008

In April each year, usually the hottest month of a year, the traditional Thai New Year is celebrated, better known as 'Songkhran Festival'. What might end up in hefty water fights at Khaosan Road or in Pattaya, is a very nice and funny festival outside the typical tourist areas. Any public institution, and as such any university, will celebrate the new year with its own event. The photographs below are taken at Ramkhamhaeng University and at the Institute of International Studies (IIS-RU) on April 11, 2008.
