    New for 2017, it’s my annual holiday list! Hopefully, I’ve got all the actual holidays and their correct substitution days listed. Buddhist holidays are “alcohol-free” days, so make sure you stock up before the holiday. The source for my list is given at the end of the post. As in previous years, I do not list regional holidays, Chinese New Year, Loy Krathong, etc.


    Sunday January 01: New Year’s Day

    Monday January 02: Substitution for New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day

    Tuesday January 03: Special Holiday

    Saturday February 11: Makha Bucha Day

    Monday February 13: Substitution for Makha Bucha Day

    Thursday April 06: Chakri Memorial Day

    Thursday April 13: Songkran Festival

    Friday April 14: Songkran Festival

    Saturday April 15: Songkran Festival

    Sunday April 16: Songkran Festival

    Monday May 01: National Labor Day

    Friday May 05: Coronation Day*

    Wednesday May 10: Wisakha Bucha Day

    Saturday July 08: Asarnha Bucha Day

    Monday July 10: Substitution for Asarnha Bucha Day

    Saturday August 12: H.M. the Queen’s Birthday

    I am, however
    I figure the Bank of Thailand would have the most up-to-date list. I haven't seen any printed 2017 calendars yet. My guess is that things will be more solidified in the first half of 2017. But for now, I go with what I know.
