Coming back from vacation: how to avoid traffic after the holidays Songkran

Songkran holidays are one of the most colorful and beloved events in Thailand, attracting millions of tourists and locals. But as soon as the holidays are over, the real test begins - the return home.

This year, many motorists want to avoid traffic jams and return home earlier than usual. Traffic is expected to pick up on Sunday as many holidaymakers return home from Songkran celebrations in the northern and northeastern provinces.

Despite an increase in traffic on the Asia Highway in Ayutthaya province north of Bangkok, many drivers reported that traffic was smooth and vehicles were moving at speeds between 100 and 120 kilometers per hour.

In addition, many motorists turn to online map services to find the safest and fastest route to get home. This year, many will also stay on vacation for a few extra days to avoid traffic on Monday, the last day of the holidays.

The police are warning drivers to be careful and follow the rules of the road, especially at intersections and narrow sections of roads. It is also recommended to use public transport or hire professional drivers to avoid problems on the roads.

Coming home after the Songkran holidays can be a difficult experience for motorists, but with the right planning and care, traffic problems can be avoided. All you need to do is to choose a safe and fast route, follow the rules of the road and be prepared for possible delays on the road.
