Although Valentine’s Day is a western holiday, it is now a day that is celebrated in Thailand. During Valentine’s day, you will see malls full of decorations and Thai people buy gifts, chocolate, flowers for their significant others.

How to say Happy Valentines day in Thai

To say Happy Valentines Day in Thai there are 3 ways. The most common way is แฮปปี้วาเลนไทน์ (hâep-bpêe waa-layn-tai). This way is literally “happy valentines” pronounced with a Thai accent.

The other ways to say it are สุขสันต์วันวาเลนไทน์ (sùk-săn wan waa-layn-tai) or สุขสันต์วันแห่งความรัก (sùk-săn wan hàeng kwaam rák).

Let’s break these phrases down:

สุขสันต์ (sùk-săn) by itself means to be happy but it is typically used before most holidays meaning happy valentines, merry Christmas, etc.

วัน (wan) means “day”.

วาเลนไทน์ (waa-layn-tai) is just the way Thais pronounced Valentines. Since there is no “v” sound in Thai, the “v” sound becomes a “w” sound.

แห่งความรัก (hàeng kwaam rák), hàeng means “of”, kwaam rák means “love”. So in the last version สุขสันต์วันแห่งความรัก (sùk-săn wan hàeng kwaam rák) is literally: happy day of love.
