SALA songkran23_1

SALA PHUKET WILL CELEBRATE SONGKRAN, the traditional Thai New Year Festival at SALA Thai Village Fair, where you’ll be able to sample cuisine from Thailand’s four regions.

At the Yadong Bar, there will be free-flowing Thai elixirs, draft Chang beer and selected winea through the course of the evening while you’re entertained by Thai dancers and musicians.

Songkran is a favorite celebration for Thais, in which goodwill, compassion, love and thankfulness is expressed by throwing water at each other, believing that water will wash away bad luck.

The word Songkran comes from ancient Sanskrit, meaning “to move or step forward”. The first day of Songkran takes place when the sun moves from Pisces into Aries, which marks New Year’s Day according to the Brahmin solar system.

The cost – 1,200 BHT per person and with free-flowing beer, wine and soft drinks, 1,700 BHT a person.
