Loy Krathong comes early this year, early November. The date always varies concerning observance with November 3 (Friday) being the official date, but many areas including Bangkok seem to have celebrations planned for November 4. Check with your local authority concerning the date for your area. Pete :cheers:

Four-day holidays for New Year
Published: 7/11/2017 at 04:34 PM

Online news: https://www.bangkokpost.com/news/genera ... recent_box

Thailand will have a four-day break for revellers to celebrate the upcoming new year.

The cabinet on Tuesday announced the New Year holidays from Dec 30, 2017 to Jan 2, 2018 as the last two days of the year fall on a weekend.

"In principle, if annual holidays fall on weekends, additional holidays will be added," government spokesman Lt Gen Sansern Kaewkamnerd said.

You gotta love the government junta here, lets give the people more holidays, but ban alcohol, smoking, vaping, fireworks, music, dancing girls, advertising, opening after midnight, inappropriate coloured clothing, full moon parties, gatherings of more than four people, chairs on beaches, food vendors on the street, and farting in public.

Go Thailand! Enjoy your extra days off!

2018 and going forward is the same as 2017:

1) The new King, Rama X birthday is on July 28 and is a national holiday.

2) The late King's birthday on December 5 remains a national holiday and celebrated on the following Monday if December 5 falls on a weekend. However, December 5 also remains as Father's Day regardless if it falls on a weekend or not.

CABINET ANNOUNCES 5-DAY SONGKRAN HOLIDAY
The cabinet of ministers announced Tuesday that the Songkran holiday will be two days longer this year.

Junta spokesman Col. Atisit Chaiyanuwat said the holiday would be observed on April 12 and April 16 this year since the official days – April 14 and April 15 – fall on a weekend.

Atisit said he hoped the extended holiday would promote tourism.
