‘Tis the season for Super Soakers and floral shirts. Here’s how to pick the best shirts for Songkran, so you can stay cool and comfortable during the (wet) Thai New Year.


The Classic: Colorful Floral Print Shirt
For Songkran, pick out the brightest, most colorful floral pattern you can find. It’s the best time of the year to liven up your style, even if you’re a white shirt kind of guy.

The added benefit of wearing a cotton shirt is that cotton dries faster than other fabrics, meaning even if you get soaked all day, you’ll never get, well, soggy. Wear it over a pair of swim trunks and consider yourself good to go.

The Other Classic: A Fun T-Shirt
When it comes to t-shirts at Songkran, the brighter the better. If you’re wearing a t-shirt at Songkran, you might as well have fun with it. Heck, you can even wear a target on your chest for people to shoot their water guns at. What you wear can be part of the fun.

The Practical: An Atheltic Performance Shirt
If comfort is your main priority, a high-performance shirt will be your best bet. Look for a shirt that is quick-drying or sweat-wicking, as these types of shirts are designed to pull moisture away from your body and evaporate, so you will dry faster.

Whatever you end up wearing to Songkran this year, expect to get wet and have a great time!
