Songkran substitute holidays to be spread over 3 weekends
Hopes that the Songkran substitute holiday might last for eight straight days were dashed by the prime minister on Tuesday (June 23).

The government had no intention of imposing a single holiday in compensation for the postponed Songkran festival, General Prayut Chan-o-cha announced after the weekly Cabinet meeting.

Instead, two substitute holidays will be added to three weekends, extending them until Tuesday, he said. The move to break up the substitute holidays would ensure minimum disruption to productivity as civil servants and others worked to get the country back on its feet after the Covid-19 outbreak, he added.

Govt offers July 27 as first compensation for Songkran

This year’s Songkran holidays will be tied in with His Majesty’s birthday, government spokesperson Narumon Pinyosinwat announced on Monday (June 29).

The holidays will run from July 25 to July 28 (the King’s birthday), with Monday, July 27 marked as the first compensatory holiday for Songkran, which had been cancelled earlier this year due to the pandemic. Decision on compensation for the other two days of the three-day festival is still pending.

The Cabinet has been postponing making a decision on new dates for Songkran holidays in line with measures to curb the spread of Covid-19.
