Bangkok (NNT/VNA) - Cambodian migrant workers in Thailand have made their way back home through Ban Laem border crossing to spend time with their relatives during the Songkran holiday. 

Around 10,000 Cambodian workers returned to their home country on April 8 via Ban Laem border checkpoint in Pong Nam Ron district, Chantaburi province. More workers are expected to leave this week. 

Many of them have been working in Bangkok, Samut Prakan, Chonburi, Rayong and Chantaburi provinces. Both Thai and Cambodian border authorities have been working together to ensure their safe return. They are required to cross back to Thailand no later than April 30 at the same border crossing.
