It is the first time in years that we are in Bangkok for Songkran, we usually go to Mukdahan , so what to do in Bangkok?
After some research online, two streets are where the fun is, Khao San road and Silom road. Silom road is close to where we live, but no temples there, so let’s go to Khao San road and visit a few Wat first.
Next, taking a tuk tuk to Khao San road. They sure keep their mirrors pretty clean.
A bit of shooting before going to Khao San road, just practicing.
And here we are, going to Khao San road, with a bit of security, but nice one.
Once inside, at least for the first part of the street, the crowd was not too heavy. It got much heavier second part of the street, so heavy in fact that I could not take any picture anymore.
And we could practice our shooting skills, we kind of forget for one year to another.
Water guns need water and when you’re busy firing all the time, the water in your gun is gone pretty fast. So, what can you do? Go to one of the many refill stations on the road.
It will cost you 5 Baht
And you’re ready to shoot again, and being shot at.
Anywhere you go, there is water coming at you, even from elevated platforms where some girls hose water on you.
And well, if you want some beer there, it is available.
Teamwork is best if you want to make sure the people you’re aiming at will get very wet.
I was using the Canon 6D with the Canon lens 24-105mm for these pictures, it is supposed to be weather-proof, but I was not expecting that 😀
A bit of white powder here and there also.
Overall a fun day
Let’s do it again next year.
