Songkran, the celebration of the New Year is a three day festival that brings revelers from around the world to exotic Thailand.

Revelers from around the world visit Chiang Mai, Phuket and Bangkok to celebrate the New Year during Songkran, April 13th through 15th. Announcements of vacation packages from travel companies like Virgin Vacations has made enjoying this year’s celebration within reach for many would-be revelers.

As vacationers visit the festivities around the country they can expect to be doused with water as celebrants show respect for elders by sprinkling water on their heads – perhaps a bit too much respect for some people’s tastes.

Songkran is three days of celebration that includes colorful parades, wonderful feasts, terrific cultural displays and revelry enjoyed by people of all ages, nationals and visitors to Thailand.

Thailand vacations have become more popular in recent years than they had been previously as many more Americans look for exotic, new experiences. Enjoying the sights, sounds and tastes of a new culture has become a focal point of many travel plans.

As Songkran approaches Thailand vacations and vacation packages will begin to heat up as the eyes of the world focus on the spectacular sights, sounds and cultural displays throughout Thailand.

Virgin Vacations offers travelers an opportunity to spend 3-Nights in each of Thailand’s most historic cities: Chiang Mai, Phuket and Bangkok so vacationers to this exotic land can experience all that Thailand has to offer before, during or after Songkran.

As many Americans vowed to concentrate on the quality of life in 2006 during New Year’s celebrations, visiting a destination like Thailand during their celebration of the New Year may be a great way to keep a resolution to enjoy life more.
