Since there is no official venue for Songkran celebration in Kuala Lumpur, the Thai Buddhist Chatawan Temple is hosting the Songkran at the temple compound for many revellers to celebrate the festival.Songkran 2013 (13)

Be ready to get wet, with powder and water gun aiming at you. I have wet bucket unintentionally thrown at me. Luckily Songkran is about water and not throwing durian fruit.
