While it might not completely follow the spirit of Songkran celebration, an extra benefit of everyone getting soaked is many fine, fine gentlemen in tight, wet T-shirts. Don’t act like the thought didn’t cross your mind.
Bangkok offers a Gay Songkran (ahem, wet) dream to those that want to get out and get wild. Silom turns into a huge water fight/bar party during Songkran, and Soi 2 and 4 will be heaving with Bangkok boys and visitors having a good time. DJ Station and GOD all have special events planned for Songkran with extended hours. Since Silom itself will be closed to traffic, this whole area turns into a huge party.
Party organisers gCircuit are throwing three days of gay parties from April 15-17, the opening event taking place at the Renaissance Hotel. Expect lots of expensive underwear, eye candy, and general floozy behavior. Tickets and more information available at the party’s site. Babylon is hosting two foam parties in a general Sodom-and-Gomorrah atmosphere, guaranteeing this sauna will be busy the whole week.
If you can’t imagine a Songkran without a beach, Koh Samet is the place for the in-the-know gay to be. Dubbed Silom-Soi-4-on-Beach, Ao Tubtim and Ao Phai beaches are a lot of fun, with outdoor parties, lots of cute Aussies in speedos, and a generally open and welcoming attitude.
