People crowded the streets of Yangon on Monday, dancing and spraying water on one another. Local governors also joined in the fun, extending greetings for the New Year, which is called Thingyan in Myanmar. 

Over 200 water-throwing pandals, big fabricated structures, have been erected for the festival. Ethnic celebrations were also visible. Among them was the Rakhine tradition, which involves young men and women standing face to face and drenching each other with water while standing in long boats. Celebrations will last until Thursday.
