agoda.com, Asia's leading global hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq: PCLN), today announced special Songkran hotel deals to mark Thailand's biggest celebration.
Sawasdee bii mai! is Thai for 'Happy New Year!' and something travelers can expect to hear a lot of over the three days of Songkran. Stretching from April 13 to 15, Songkran is not only the kingdom's biggest and most important holiday, it's something that lovers of Thailand should experience at least once.
During Songkran, many Thais visit family, party with friends and make merit at their local temple. Most Bangkok residents travel upcountry to their hometowns, leaving the city unusually quiet and traffic-free for the duration of the celebration.
