Thingyan offers a rich tapestry for keen-eyed shutterbugs – provided they can keep their cameras dry. Here, brought to you by our dedicated team of photographers, are some of our favourite moments captured in years gone by, including traditional dancers in Magwe, good-natured street-side splashing, downpours at Yangon's enormous pandals, and, at festival's end, the releasing of fish and trimming of elders' fingernails to mark New Year's Day.
