XPLORE: Take a glimpse at Waterworld, Thailand

Songkran, Thailand’s New Year festival, is traditionally rooted in the zodiac calendar, when the sun enters the sign of Aries. It is a time of cleansing and renewal, but what was once a means of washing Buddha statues and the hands of elders has now turned into a nationwide water fight. An incessant deluge from shopfronts, vehicles, and passers by. A three-day party where nearly anything goes, and everyone is laughing in the streets.
