‘Sea’ in Thai New Year with Gap Adventures

9th March 2011 Print

To celebrate the Songkran Festival - the Thai New Year, celebrated on 13-15 April with one long water fight - Gap Adventures is offering a 10% discount on four of its Thai sailing trips.

Traditionally, Songkran was celebrated by sprinkling water on Buddha images and on each other's hands for good luck; now, buckets, water guns and hoses are used in what has become a huge street party/water fight. Take the water theme one step further and book your place on one of the following Thai Sailing Adventures and save 10%. The booking must be made before 18 April 2011 and travel completed by 31st August.
