The Capital or Northern Thailand is surrounded by an ancient moat that is filled to the brim and surrounded by literally tens of thousands of revelers. The water fighting and splashing in Chiang Mai is on all sides of the moat and there are also large crowds on Huay Kaew Road.

The whole city is drowned in the ocean of fun and joy and the heat seems to matter no more to the thousands of tourists, tens of thousands of Thais all celebrating the frenzy that is Songkran festivital.
