April in Thai is เมษายน pronounced may-săa-yon. Like all months (เดือน deuan) in Thai that have 30 days, it ends with ยน (yon.).

The abbreviated version of เมษายน is เม.ย.

The beginning of เมษายน is เมษ (mâyt) coming from the Aries zodiac sign. The reason for this is that months in Thai all come from zodiac signs.


April in Thailand Songkran

By far the most popular festivity in April is Songkran สงกรานต์. Songkran is the Thai new year and it is celebrated on April 13. But the celebration goes on for a few more days.
