If you’re looking for extra things to see and do during Songkran, check out the local resorts and hotels that all have events, dinners and parties all weekend from April 12th to April 14th.
Daytime Activities during Songkran in Hua Hin
Head to Market Village. There will be water fights, food stalls, and you can buy all your Songkran gear and essentials there. You might also find a foam party there as well. It will be crowed and busy. So if this is the vibe you enjoy, get a tuk tuk there and get ready to get wet.
Check out the activities in and around Hua Hin train station. This station is a landmark in Hua Hin and during Songkran people gather there. Walk from the Grand Centara Resort to the station and enjoy the street celebration festivities of Songkran. Don’t forget to bring a waterproof cover for your phone.
Hua Hin 57 Road, that stretches from the beach and runs inland for kilometres, is the hub of Songkran Street celebrations. Located a few minutes walk from the Hilton Hotel, be prepared to get super soaked as you walk up and down the street. It crosses the night markets, so if you’re there around 6:00pm you can pick up some extra water guns and souvenirs before grabbing dinner at one of the seafood restaurants and a refreshing beer.
