Songkran in Thailand

Is Songkran a Public Holiday?

Songkran is a public holiday. It is a day off for the general population, and schools and most businesses are closed.

In 2019 it falls on a Saturday. Due to this, some businesses may choose to follow Saturday opening hours.

Songkran Observances

Note: Since 1996, if a holiday falls on a weekend, the following working day is observed as a compensatory non-working day, subject to Thailand's Cabinet declarations.
