friends in Thailand as the country begins its new year celebrations.

the countries serviced by the company.
Traditionally celebrated from the 13th - 15th of April, the Songkran festival now
features week-long street parties and water fights.

Thai culture as well as finding a rather unconventional way to cool down from the
Firstnumber.co.uk spokesperson Andy Steele hopes the service – which allows callers

will allow individuals based in Britain to wish loved ones a happy new year.
“Songkran is a really exciting time of year to visit Thailand, not just for the
great weather but for the party atmosphere that runs from north to south for most of
“Needless to say, Thailand is a particularly popular destination for tourists during
April and it's understandable that family and friends will want to keep in touch
with loved ones during their travels or perhaps wish Thai residents a happy new year

more generously discounted calls than many of its competitors with calls to
landlines and mobiles both priced at 1p a minute.
