Since I’ve been asked many times what to say during the Thai New Year’s Festival (Songkran / Water Festival) I thought I’d publish this short post to explain it briefly.
Sawadee (similar to sawadee krub/ka for ‘hello’).
Pee = Year
Mai = New
+ polite ka (women) or krub (men)
So I’d say:
Sawadee pee mai krub!
