What is Southeast Asian New Year? It's a uniquely derived calendar system prominently celebrated as "Songkran" in various parts of the region such as Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, parts of Vietnam, and parts of China. This cultural traditional is often known throughout the world as "Water Festival" where the population of the region celebrates the occasion by splashing or pouring water at one another as part of a cleansing ritual. The New Year dates vary across the region from April 13-15.
If you're ever visiting the region during this period, you're in for some splashing water fun! You'll get splashed indiscriminately and you'll probably welcome the festivity because it's the peak of a blazing hot summer there!
