Meanwhile, at home and in Pattaya,  police have done the rounds of entertainment venues, marking out areas of extra interest during the  Songkran period.

Additional forces will be on duty to ensure safety for tourists and locals alike.

A ban on big water guns is to be enforced and the reminder is still out to those who like to throw water early mornings and after 6:00 in the evenings, this is a no-no.

Every year we see workers drenched on their way to work and injuries to people on bikes. This is usually caused by visitors who get carried away.

Please remember that ladies or men who are dressed in smart clothing, are more than likely on the way to or from work and not part of the fun.
