Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn graciously attended a Songkran ceremony at the Lao Embassy in Bangkok yesterday.

The Princess, who visits the Lao mission on Songkran every year, participated in the ceremonial tying of white thread on people’s wrists for good luck, and watched a performance of traditional Thai dance.

Thailand and Laos mark the traditional New Year on April 13 every year, by splashing others with water to symbolically cool them down on a hot summer day.
