This April most Thai people are happy because they have two long holidays.
The first holiday is 6th-9th April due to Chakri Memorial Day on 6th April, and the royal cremation day on 9th April, which has been declared a public holiday by the Cabinet.
The second holiday is 13th – 16th April due to Thai New Year or Song Kran.
Let’s learn a few vocabulary:)
Holiday in Thai is วันหยุด [wan yùt]. หยุด [yùt] means ‘to stop’ referring to stop working.
Long in Thai is ยาว [yaao]
Long holiday is วันหยุดยาว [wan yùt yaao]
If your Thai friends are having a vacation during their long holidays you can wish them a good trip by saying เที่ยวให้สนุกนะ [tîao hâi sà-nùk ná].
เที่ยว[tîao] means ‘to go on a vacation’, ‘to go out for pleasure’.
สนุก [sà-nùk] means ‘fun’.
I hope you have a great holiday:)
