Today, April 6, is Chakri Day, a national holiday and I would think all government offices are closed. I also imagine that many will take off tomorrow as well and make it a four day weekend.

Thursday April 13 through Sunday April 16 are the official dates for Songkran and again I would think all government offices will be closed throughout the period.

With only a few days between holiday periods, the mass exodus to home provinces may begin today and traffic volume will build continuously.

THAILAND ADDS TWO NEW HOLIDAYS TO THE YEAR

Two new national holidays marking the reign of King Rama X were added to the calendar Tuesday by the interim cabinet.

The two new holidays include July 28, King Vajiralongkorn’s birthday, and Oct. 13, which will mark to the death of his father, King Bhumibol.

That means a net gain of one holiday for the country, for now. May 5, which celebrated the coronation of King Bhumibol, will no longer be a national holiday.

A heads up so everyone is aware.

BANGKOK — Two new national holidays marking the reign of King Rama X were added to the calendar Tuesday by the interim cabinet.

The two new holidays include July 28, King Vajiralongkorn’s birthday, and Oct. 13, which will mark to the death of his father, King Bhumibol.

The royal cremation ceremony for the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej is scheduled for Oct 25-29 with the actual royal cremation on Thursday Oct 26, which has been declared a public holiday.

Note: The article doesn't say, but I imagine the entire period will be dry days.

October should be a one month holiday: 13 to 15, 21 to 23, 25 to 29= 11 days . That's Happiness
