Songkran Festival 2024 (สงกรานต์ 2567), also known as the Thai New Year, will be celebrated from 13 – 15 April 2024 throughout the country. Marking the start of the most important festival in Thailand, locals will perform a series of activities from cleaning their homes, paying respect to elders by cleaning their feet with scented water, to praying at the temples over the 3 day public holiday.
