Lanna Songkran Traditions

The Thai New Year festival known as Songkran in celebrated all over Thailand. Some regions – particularly in the north and in the south – have a few differences which create their own unique local flavor.  The Lanna region in northern Thailand around the cities of Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai is one of those places.

The name “Lanna” means “Kingdom of a Million Rice Fields” and we’ve created this handy infographic to show you some of the Lanna traditions that you will see during the next few days.

Happy Songkran!
