Traditional Songkran celebrated at Dusit Thani Pattaya


Dusit Thani Pattaya GM Chatchawal Supachayanont (centre) led staff and management in marking the first day of the Thai New Year, Songkran Festival, also known as the Water Festival. Although the Songkran Festival is celebrated at a later date in Pattaya and other districts of Chonburi province, the hotel traditionally marks the auspicious day on the 13th of April by giving alms to monks and making merit. The event was concluded with the pouring of scented water and flower petals on the hands of Chatchawal as the entire staff took turns in wishing him a Happy and Prosperous Thai New Year and received his blessings in return.
