Thailand has just concluded Songkran (traditional Thai New Year), which is celebrated on April 13-15. The festival has many fun features, most significant of all is water. People are out on the streets getting drenched, dancing, eating, greeting each other a happy new year. This is a scene in Huahin last week. Hilton Hotel is behind that old house which is actually a bar. Behind it is Hard Rock Cafe, and the opposite side are an assortment of shops and restaurants. White foreigners participate in this event too as you can see. They have as much fun as the locals.
