Local from Yangon (Rangoon)

Water festival in Yangon is a different ballgame to Thailand - expect loud music, constant water throwing and the whole city celebrating the festivities

First to Review

New Year Water Festival in Burma is known as 'Thingyan'. Its resembles the one in Thailand known as "Song Kran", which celebrates the same Buddhist tradition of throwing water on one another to wash away last year's bad habits and to bring in a new year fully refreshed.
