Welcome to the April edition of our E-Newsletter. This month sees festive celebrations throughout the Kingdom as it welcomes the Thai New Year and the water festival, traditionally known as the Songkran Festival.
Although the custom is often associated with fun and boisterous water splashing at each other, its significance goes much deeper and more meaningful as it symbolises happy wishes for a fresh start of the brand new year to our families and loved ones. Here at Dusit Thani Pattaya, we celebrate the first day of the festival with merit-making ceremonies followed by the traditional pouring of scented water on the hands of elders as well as the bathing ritual on the Buddha image.
If you happen to be in Pattaya on that day, you are more than welcome to join us.
Thank you all, as always and we wish you a safe and fantastic Songkran Holiday!
