Four day weekend set for end of July as Thailand adds a Songkran make-up day to holiday calendar


The Thai Government announced that they will be giving an additional public holiday next month on Monday, July 27, 2020, which will be one of three promised “make-up” days for the postponed April Songkran public holidays.

The announcement was made by Thai Government spokesperson Narumon Pinyosinwat. This would make July 25-July 28 a four day weekend. July 28 will be His Royal Majesty the King’s birthday and is a pre scheduled public holiday.

It is worth noting that although this is a “make-up” day for the Songkran holidays it will not be full of water fights or other similar festivities but is merely a public holiday owed the public that was postponed earlier in the year.

Narumon stated that the Thai Government had not decided upon dates for additional owed public holidays from the Songkran period and they would come later in the year when the Thai Cabinet made final decisions.
