First-hand account of Thailand’s wildest festival – Songkhran One of the most important festivals in the country, Songkran is a celebration of the traditional Thai New Year. During the day, locals visit temples, offer delicious home cooked meals to Buddhist monks and pour water on small Buddha statues, a symbolic gesture representing the cleansing and absolution of one’s sins. Known for its water festival, this holiday is especially cherished by young people as they splash water on each other with buckets, water filled balloons and water guns. Most major streets in Thailand are closed to traffic to allow numerous young people to use them safely as arenas for water fights. The festival also involves lavish traditional parades with intricately decorated floats, dancers in colourful clothing and a spectacular fireworks display, which the locals believe fends off misfortune.

In all my 15 years of traveling to South East Asia and of which 12 years to Thailand, I can only say that I have fallen head-over-heels with this Land of Smiles and especially its beaches. I simply cannot get over the sunsets over the Andaman when viewed from the western coast of Phuket and so much so, it has led me to buy my own home on the island.

Self Drive Through The Kruger National Park Sawubona… or hello in Zulu…. We picked up a brand new Hyundai ix-35 or the now popularly known Hyundai Tucson (recently launched in India) from Avis Rent-a-Car, ZA and could get a manual transmission – petrol version. I was initially a bit apprehensive of the 2.0 ltr engine as I was sure to be doing a lot of climbs around the Blyde Canyon region and wasn’t too sure of the capacity of the engine to manage steep turns. Unfortunately, I wasn’t entirely wrong. Even on the beautiful empty stretches of highway between Nelspruit and Hazyview (a town bordering Kruger), it was a task trying to get the ix-35 to stretch its legs. However, I soon got used to keep the engine revved to the medium range, where there was genuinely smooth cruising and lesser engine noise. I would think that the diesel options would give a far higher power throughput on intended higher speeds. Anyhow, I must compliment Hyundai 100% on the overall design, interiors and internal space in the ix-35. Loads of boot space, great back seat space to stretch out your legs and a very nice seating and console for both the driver and co-passenger. The AV console paired within seconds to my phone, and it was Alanis Morrissett all the way into the wild.
