Where to go (& not to go!) during Songkran 2016

21 Feb 2016 17:30 #3438 by wildambience
I'll be visiting Thailand in early March & again in April 2016, and specifically wanted some advice as to when the Songkran holiday rush will be. On the calendar it states the public holidays are from April 13-15 . My wife and I arrive in Thailand early on the 11th April, and were considering visiting Kaeng Krachan for two nights on the 11th & 12th, then heading somewhere like Huai Kha Khaeng for the following few days, hoping it would be quieter.

If the public holiday officially starts on the 13th, will there likely be a mass exodus from Bangkok on the 12th?! If this is the case we might re-arrange our trip. We could potentially head for Khao Yai for a night on the 11th, then travel further north to spend a few days in Phu Khieo - would this place would be immune to the festivities?!

At the moment the main places we'd like to visit are as follows:

Phu Khieo/Nam Nao
Mae Wong
Huai Kha Khaeng
Kaeng Krachan
Pang Sida/Thap Lan
Koh Surin

All up we'll have 18 days to travel around and our schedule is flexible - any suggestions on places which would be not visited by crowds during Songkran? And how long does the festival last for?
