Since im going to be in Thailand for Songkran festival ,i have some questions?
1) If im in Pattaya and i walk out of my hotel room ,should i expect to get soaked by whoever?
2) What’s the white smack that people be smearing on others faces?
3) Ive heard the festival last frpm April 13th-15th and also from the 18th-20th what are the actual dates of this Songkran festival?
4)Is Songkram going to be in certain parts of Pattaya will the entire city be involved ,is there not going to be anyplace to hide?
From the You Tube videos ive seen ,i bet my little nephews and nieces would love something like that ,it seems like it would be a kids paradise.
1- yes. and don’t think you won’t. you will need to buy a waterproof satchel for your valuables from 7/11 for about 40 baht.
2- it’s just a mix of baby powder and water. be careful of the people with the shampoo bottles. theres not many but if they get you your eyes will sting for hours. also wear sunglasses. getting shot in the eyes for days is not good. and red eyes are not sexy. personally i tend to aim for people eyes because i am not a nice person and my water pistol is very powerful
3- dates vary all over the country. in phuket it’s just 2 days 13th and 14th. in pattaya apparently it is 13-19th with the biggest days being the 13th, 14th and 19th so i am told. that is where i will be this year.
the rest of the country i am not certain exactly but i hear isaan and chiang mai genrally go for a week the same as pattaya.
4- well i’m told by my friend who lives there that beach rd is the place to be but i am pretty sure there will be no place to really hide in the city. if it is anything like patong. hide in your hotel room if you really want to hide.
yea i think kids would like it.
Restaurants in Korat
Korat is not a major tourist destination, and there are relatively few expats living in this area of Thailand, so please do not expect an overwhelming selection of restaurants which serve western style food.
I would, however, like to point out that there are definitely a number of excellent restaurants in town which are well worth visiting. If you ever do visit Korat, then please do try and visit one of the excellent establishment listed down below.
This well known Swiss Chef operates restaurants in both Koh Samui as well as in Nakhon Ratchasima. His local establishment is located within walking distance of the ever so popular night market, and serves high quality European and Asian dishes. It is also one of the only venues in the area where you can get high quality Japanese beef, and it is also home to one of the best wine collections in town.
I really enjoy good pizzas, and if you are looking for a place which offers them, then do visit Dr. Pizzan which is located on the outskirts of town in the Choho area. It has a proper Italian brick style wood oven, and the owner uses only the best and freshest ingredients. What I also like about this dining venue is the fact that it has a lovely and relaxing terrace where you can sit and enjoy a nice cold drink and a bite to eat.
My favorite place for European food is Amporn, which is also located in the center of Korat. This lovely dining establishment is owned by another Swiss fellow, and Gaston certainly knows how to spoil his customers. They also have a large screen where you can watch live sporting events, and they also have daily live folk music.
One of the newest restaurants in town is The Frog. It is owned and managed by a Thai chef who worked in various leading New York hotels. The menu offers both Thai and European dishes, and the price-to-quality relationship is simply outstanding. It is open daily from 10:30 until 20:30.
One of the most popular places in town is Big Chili, which is the only Mexican restaurant in the region. Although the eatery is owned by a Thai couple, the food is surprisingly authentic, and outstanding.
James is a travel consultant living on Phuket, and is working on a number of projects. If you are looking for information about Phuket, then be sure to visit his Phuket guide, which includes an excellent section on Phuket Activities.
