Songkran is similar to Puthandu in India, Sri Lanka and Southeast Asia. Songkran is especially celebrated with families visiting their hometowns and spending time with their elders.

The celebration includes a traditional water pouring ceremony which symbolizes washing all the bad luck away and sometimes the water is blessed with scented herbs.

Songkran is also celebrated in India which is called Sangken by the Buddhist community. The modernization of Songkran has grown and is still celebrated with the younger generations.
