  • 23-25 February: Makha Bucha Day
  • 6-8 April: Chakri Day

  • 4-6 May: Coronation Day

  • 24-26 May: Visakha Bucha Day
  • 20-23 July: Asahana Bucha Day
  • 10-12 August: Queen’s Birthday

* Thai Govt declared 12 April as an extra holiday to make a 5 day weekend for Songkran

Please note, the King’s birthday is midweek and so doesn’t make a long weekend. That is why it is not listed here.

  1. Will Immigration close all offices for Visakha Bucha Day? I’m flying out of Suvarnabhumi that Friday and was hoping to get the re-entry permit at the airport. Does that airport office close as well?
