Coinciding with the hottest time of year in the Southeast Asian region, April brings New Year celebrations for Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar. Commonly known collectively in the West as ‘Water Festivals’, each of the aforementioned countries celebrates their New Year over (at least!) a three day period from the 13-16 April in the Gregorian calendar.
