online Thai lesson

“วันเด็กแห่งชาติ / wan-dèk hɛ̀ng châat /” is celebrated on the second Saturday in January. Many organizations from both the government and commercial sectors have celebration activities for children. Children can enter zoos or ride buses for free.

The Prime Minister usually gives each Children’s Day a theme that can be summarized by its motto.

In 2015, the Motto for Children’s Day is “Knowledge and Morality Lead to the Future | ความรู้ คู่คุณธรรม นำสู่อนาคต / kwaam-rúu, kûu kun-na-tam, nam sùu à-naa-kót /”.

Many Government offices are open to children and their family, this includes the Government House, the Parliament House Complex and various Military installation. These events may include a guided tour and an exhibition. A notable example is the guided tour at the Government House, where children have an opportunity to view the Prime Minister’s office and sit at the bureau. The Royal Thai Air Force usually invite children to go and explore the aircraft.
