Just scrub it and let people do what they want when they can afford to do it.

How about a compromise?

 

Anyone trying to enter a shop that isn't wearing a mask or refuses to sign the book gets a bucket of water thrown over them?

having the holiday in September would be a better idea if they have it at all.  Families right now are trying to put together the money for schools tuition, uniforms andbooks.  Schools must at this point be getting low on their reserves

 

Giving people a holiday at this time is stupid.  wait a couple of months until people feel safer travelling and have the funds to spend.

School, possibly opens in chiangmai on 1 July.  So students would go 1,2, and 3.   Off 4 and 5 july for the weekend and the new songkhran festival 6-9 july.  Then back to school on friday 10 july?  Again closed for the weekend and go back to school on Monday 13 july.   Maybe forget songkhran holiday this year except for necessary temple events?

IMHO the only thing that will bring happiness to the people is the day that this government and all the "handpicked" senators are kicked out and replaced by a truly civilian freely elected government and new Senators voted in.

 

NO military or ex military need to apply.

 

Even Thaksin at his worst was never this bad.

As foreigners we mostly just think of Songkran as a fun time, but it is perhaps the most important cultural holiday there is. If you have ever been in any of the non-touristy provinces during this time you'll see a different form of celebration, with still a lot of fun, but different and very family oriented. Obviously they're willing to sell out this ancient cultural holiday for tourism's sake.

What Songkran substitute??? Call it a Covid holiday! 5 working days for everyone. Ok 10 working days. We don't wanna be stingy.
