- +

At least 61 per cent of foreign tourists now visiting Bangkok intend to take part in the Songkran celebrations, according to the result of a survey by Bangkok Poll released on Wednesday. 

A minority, 15 per cent, said they would not, while the rest said they knew very little about the Thai New Year festival.

Of those who would take part in the celebrations, about 15 per cent planned to join in the fun on Khao San Road in Bangkok, 8.5 per cent at Pattaya in Chon Buri, 8 per cent at the resort island of Phuket, and 6 per cent at Samui Island off Surat Thani.
