Upcoming Holidays in Thailand on April 2024

As April approaches, Thailand is gearing up to celebrate several significant holidays, promising a festive atmosphere across the country. Here’s a rundown of the key dates to mark in your calendar.

  1. Chakri Day (Saturday, April 6): This day commemorates the establishment of the Chakri Dynasty, which has been the ruling royal house of Thailand since 1782. It is a time to honor the contributions of the Chakri kings to the nation.
  2. Chakri Day in Lieu (Monday, April 8): As Chakri Day falls on a Saturday this year, Monday, April 8, will be observed as a substitute holiday, allowing people to enjoy an extended weekend.
  3. Extra Holiday for Songkran (Friday, April 12): In anticipation of the Songkran festival, which marks the traditional Thai New Year, the Thai government has declared April 12 as an additional holiday. This aims to facilitate travel and celebration during this festive period.
  4. Songkran (Saturday, April 13, to Tuesday, April 16): Songkran is one of Thailand’s most important festivals, known for its water fights and symbolic rituals. It marks the beginning of the traditional Thai New Year and is a time for family reunions, temple visits, and paying respects to elders.

During these holidays, many Thais take the opportunity to travel, spend time with family, and participate in traditional customs and festivities. Businesses, government offices, and banks may have altered operating hours, so it’s advisable to plan ahead and check schedules accordingly.
