As the mercury soars in Thailand, locals and tourists find unique ways to beat the heat. The recent spike in temperatures, reaching a scorching 45°C for the first time, has set new heat records and pushed the country’s electricity consumption to unprecedented levels.

However, despite the sweltering conditions, experts assure us that Thailand’s current high temperatures don’t quite constitute a heat wave. It’s a crucial distinction that separates the occasional hot day from a sustained period of dangerously high temperatures.

Introduction to Songkran: Thailand’s Water Festival

Songkran Festival in Thailand, typically in mid-April, offers relief from the scorching heat, reaching record highs of 45°C. The festival is not only a cultural celebration but also an economic powerhouse, projected to inject 50,000 to 80,000 million baht into the economy by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT).

With an estimated 510,000 international visitors and 4.29 million domestic trips, a 49% revenue increase is anticipated compared to the previous year.

Amidst these festivities, food delivery services like foodpanda thrive, providing relief in unbearable temperatures. Launching heat-busting campaigns, foodpanda aids the economy while serving its customers during the hot months with the campaign “10,000 Deals of Summer.”
