Sawatdii Pii Mai! - New Year in Thailand

Sawatdii Pii Mai! - Neujahr in Thailand

More than a third of the Thai population lives in sprouting cities like Chiang Mai, the capital of the old Thai kingdom of Lan-na, known as the «land of millions of rice paddies». Harvest is followed by a time of feasting. The Songkran Water Festival, a consecration ceremony, is coming up soon, when the Thai New Year is celebrated between April 13th and 15th. Its pre-Buddhist origins are in perfect harmony with the Buddhist doctrine of the purifying power of water for both body and mind. After all, Buddha became enlightened upon gazing on a river.
