    Hello Richard,
    Is it true that Friday 6th May is now a national holiday ?

    Hello! I am traveling to Bangkok Thailand for the first time and land on May 19. This was not planned for the holiday, but now seeing that May 20th is a holy holiday in the Buddhist culture I am wondering if anyone recommends going somewhere to see the celebrations?

    Thank you!

      Every Buddhist temple will have events. Also, check out nearer the time as I will promote it there as soon as I receive details of events.
