The national day, although not a public holiday, will give children the opportunity to have fun and to create awareness about their significant role in the development of the nation. Children's Day was first set as a national day to be observed in 1955.

Phuket, along with the rest of the country, will host activities at many government offices and hotels across the island on Saturday as follows:
The Royal Thai Navy Third Area Command, based at Cape Panwa, will host its traditional activities which will include military weapon exhibition, a live air-marine rescue simulation performance, and a chance for people to board and view the Navy base’s hostage rescue military ship.

The Phuket Provincial Office and the Phuket Provincial Administrative Organisation (PPAO, or OrBorJor) will host their Children’s Day events at Phuket Provincial Hall, where children will be able to sit in the Governor’s chair among other fun activities.
