[Dubai, March 8, 2024] "Experience an extraordinary cultural fusion this April in Thailand as the vibrant festivities of Songkran and Eid Al-Fitr merge. Celebrating Thailand's traditional New Year, Songkran, alongside Eid Al-Fitr, marking the end of Ramadan, promises an unparalleled cultural extravaganza. UNESCO's recent recognition of the Songkran Festival as a cultural heritage further emphasizes its significance.

Unforgettable Journey to Celebrate Songkran and Eid Al-Fitr

In line with this acknowledgment, the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is gearing up for the "Maha Songkran World Water Festival 2024," aiming to surpass pre-pandemic tourism income. Festivities will take place at key venues in Bangkok, with extended celebrations in upcountry areas. This event not only honors Songkran but also acknowledges UNESCO's recognition of its cultural importance.

During Songkran, indulge in spirited water battles, partake in symbolic purification rituals, and savor traditional performances. The arrival of Eid Al-Fitr adds another layer of cultural diversity, fostering inclusivity and unity.

This dual celebration reflects Thailand's commitment to embracing diversity and fostering community. Celebrated annually from April 13 to 15, Songkran symbolizes cleansing and tradition, with its cultural heritage designation highlighting its role in preserving Thailand's legacy and promoting diversity.

Join us this April to celebrate the convergence of Songkran and Eid Al-Fitr in Thailand. Let's unite to create lasting memories and embrace the beauty of cultural fusion in one of the world's most enchanting destinations."

Where to Celebrate Songkran in Thailand:

Chiang Mai is well-known for its vibrant Songkran festivities, which include cultural activities, street processions, and massive water battles as part of the celebration.

Bangkok is quieter than usual as many people use the extended holiday to visit family or take a break from the capital. Despite this, those seeking a festive atmosphere can still enjoy lively Songkran activities around Khao San Road and Silom Road.

Pattaya is home to a grand Songkran event, featuring the Wan Lai Festival with water festivities until April 19. For stunning sand sculptures, head to Bang Saen, but brace for traffic congestion during Songkran and the Wan Lai Festival.
