The Royal Thai Embassy in Dhaka co-organised the Songkran Festival 2022 “Songkran Bann Rao”

On 14 April 2022, the Royal Thai Embassy in Dhaka, in collaboration with Italian-Thai Development Plc., C.P. Bangladesh and Siam Cement Group Plc., organised the Songkran Festival 2022 “Songkran Bann Rao” at FDEE complex in Dhaka to celebrate Thai New Year for the Thai community. Approximately 150 Thais and locals joined the event and participated in activities, such as ritual bathing of Buddha images, having lunch together, karaoke singing contest, traditional dancing or ramvong and playing games.

On this occasion, Ambassador Makawadee Sumitmor led the team in extending best wishes to the Thai community and local citizens. She highlighted upcoming activities to commemorate the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Thailand and Bangladesh, including a photography contest, titled “More Alike Than We Might Think: Unpacking Linkages and Similarities Between Thailand and Bangladesh” and a creative video clip contest on the theme “My Bangladesh”. Both activities aim to promote deeper understanding between Thai and Bangladeshi peoples. More details will be announced soon on the Embassy’s facebook and website.

This event strengthened the bond and connection of the Thai community, and among Thai and Bangladeshi peoples in Dhaka. It portrays the eagerness of all Thais to preserve this significant tradition. The Thai New Year “Songkran” coincides with the Bengali New Year “Pohela Baishakh” observed on 14 April every year.
