Great, I need a holiday. I hope the beaches are open. 

Beaches yes anything else NO

 

Most Thais just as they normally do will decide that it makes more sense to leave the kids in the country for that week and then start them at school on the following monday or when ever the holiday is over.  

Therefore just like normal people will travel home to the country a few will head to the islands like Koh Chang and Samed but i do not see this helping Pattaya or Bangkok 

As a matter of fact it will hurt Bangkok as most of the people leave the city and there is no tourism so you are not going to have any big water parties anywhere.

I don't think it will be the big thing that it is in the past people just do not have the time or tourists to make it that strange.

Moronic suggestion. and an even bigger moron whoever passes this ridiculous idea.

 

Let's lockdown the country then open it up for people to get sloshed out of their minds, drink driving, no social distancing, no masks, accident rates will go through the roof and a long holiday that people can't afford and have no money to pay for, immediately after the kids return to school.

 

Millions now unemployed, no social assistance but let's have Songkran in July in in lieu of April.

 

This ridiculous farce of a government needs to be gone. They just cannot grasp how to govern.

The common sense is just non - existent with these people. If, and I mean a big IF, they really have to reschedule this event then July would be a completely ridiculous and unsafe time to do it. The smart move would be to either cancel it (I don't see Western countries trying to reschedule Easter) or delay it until later this year. 

 

The virus hasn't fully be eradicated, the monsoon season is starting, there is still a need for social distancing, drinking establishments remain closed, restaurants can't operate like normal, people are gradually returning to work to earn money again, children will have just gone back to school on 1st July after four months off.

 

''I know, let's have a 6 day holiday for everyone.'' 

 

Jesus Christ.

So what on earth has the above photo and caption got to do with the post about Songkran?

Do you think girl swimming pools will be open next month?

There goes all pretense of social distancing once they hit the beach. Let's see if we get the traditional kneejerk crackdown.
