Last Songkran holiday substitute set for September


BANGKOK — The last and final piece of Songkran holiday substitute, if approved, will most probably be at the beginning of September.

Minister of Culture Itthipol Khunpleum announced Thursday he would propose the remaining two days of Songkran holidays which will give us, if the Cabinet says yes, a long weekend from Friday, September 4 to Monday, September 7.

However, water splashing and huge gathering activities won’t be allowed.

In April, Songkran festival celebration was canceled due to Covid-19.

UPDATE: The Cabinet on their August 13 meeting unanimously agreed to mark September 4 and 7 as public holidays to compensate for Songkran holidays that were cancelled this year due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
