      1. Thank you, I thought the new govt. had said that all holidays were dry I thought maybe the extra holiday on Monday 4th might count, hope not. Your Twitter reports were of great assistance during the demos. Thank you, Janett

  1. Hi Richard,

    I will visit Bangkok on 10 May until 14 May. There’s public holiday on 13th May (Farmers Day),will the bars/club will close on that day?and also the malls?thank you for info.

  2. Good afternoon,

    For the Governement Holiday this week on 13th May, does it include schools? I remember having the day off last year but nothing has been said yet about this year.

    Thank you

    1. Really it is a holiday only for government workers, but as public schools are staffed by government employees, they will close too. I work in a private school and they have decided to close on Wednesday. International schools shouldn’t be affected.

  3. Richard,

    Do you know if the 13th is a holiday? My brother is a teacher and has school off as he says the government made it an extra long holiday weekend. I need to go to Laos for visa purposes. Will the consulates be open on Monday, Dec. 13th?
