Terms you should know:

Thin-gyan (which means "transition") is a Buddhist festival that lasts 4-5 days into the new year

Man-dat is the Burmese word for pandals which are temporary stages built for Thingyan where people can splash water

Pa-dauk flower blooms after the first rain of the year which usually falls during April-May
