Thai Holidays 2021

This list contains both the official holidays in Thailand (red), on which banks and government offices are closed, and the non-official (black).

As in Britain, if the official holiday falls on a weekend, then the next working day is substituted. In our calendar we have marked these as substitute holidays.
