Super Songkran Udon Getaway

Code : SONGRKAN2018

Songkran is probably the most exciting time of year to be in Thailand. Families, festivity, friends, fun, feasting and frivolity are at the core of a successful Songkran week. Yet there is so much more with the core of the festival being based around personal reflection and new hope. For those that are curious as to the bigger picture of Songkran, Pickaboo Club have created the perfect way to celebrate the 2561 water festival combining all aspects of deference, respect, community, hope, love and (a lot of) fun into the perfect 3 day getaway.

Details

Starting on April 14th we will all arrive in Udon Thani to be whisked away to our luxury villa accommodation to begin our Sonkran with the traditional Thai Blessing Ceremony ‘Bai Sri Su Kwan’. This ceremony is more commonly experienced at Thai weddings but originates as a welcoming ceremony for good fortune. We will have time to settle into our luxurious surroundings, enjoy dinner together and share our comfortable home for the next 3 days.

Our first full day will take a “relaxed” pace with a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Baan Chiang, a site of Neolithic, bronze and iron age significance as well as providing the earliest evidence of farming in the region. From here we’ll move onto the jungle hill temple “Wat Pa Phu Kon” which is a huge juxtaposition of an incredibly intricate, detailed and beautiful modern temple located deep in the jungle on the Laos/Thailand border. This is a wonderful opportunity to see traditional Thai religious depictions represented in their original, unaged, glory and is a perfect spot for a little reflective meditation (modest dress code).

On the 16th we will completely surrender ourselves to the local community to get into the full swing of the core of the Songkran celebration. We’ll party with the best of them with water, food, drinking, more water, laughter, dancing, more food, more drink, more water, rinse and repeat until completely sated then back to our peaceful villas to sleep off the worst of our excesses leaving us with wonderful memories and warm emotions to carry with us into the new year.

Our final day will be spent back on the community side of Songkran with a unique opportunity to give something back. We will visit a community library where we can donate the books that Pickaboo has collected over the past months (please ask for more details or bring age appropriate books with you, if you wish) then we’ll move on to a local orphanage to host lunch for the children.

Finally, we’ll leave back to our lives with fond memories, warm feelings, new friends, a deeper connection with Thailand and, most importantly, ourselves. You’ll also take our Pickaboo t-shirt and Pha Kao-Ma (multi-purpose sarong) to remind you of your once in a lifetime Songkran celebration.
