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.
