Laos new years from April 14-16 (or 13-15) is a great time to visit the country, with its water festival that encourages a contagious mixture of cheerfulness and cheekiness, spurred on by the constant flow of water and endless supply of Beer Laos. Jumping on the back of a truck filled with a dozen locals dancing, shouting “Saibadee Pi Mai” (happy new year), and throwing buckets of water, is a trip highlight of many lucky enough to take part in one of these annual celebrations. The festivities last a few days longer than the official three days, and is most intense in major cities such as Luang Prabang and the capital, Vientiane.
