Thailand Public & National Holidays 2011

Below is a list of Thailand’s public & National holidays for 2011. Businesses and government offices will be closed on National holidays while tourist attractions, clubs, and shops generally remain open. Many holidays such as Loy Krathong and Visaka Bucha day are based on the lunar calender so will change dates from year to year.

In the event that a National holiday falls on a weekend the substitution day is the first business day after the holiday and generally all banks, businesses and government offices are closed.

The holiday calender is located in the right sidebar year round for your convenience.

All other Thailand Events and Festivals held throughout the year can be found in the Thailand Calender of Events.

Keep in mind this is Thailand and sometimes dates are subject to change.

With new years approaching I’d love to celebrate this year abroad, I am keeping watch on cheap holiday deals in order to spend the start of the year in a new place, with flights and hotel for a few nights just to welcome to new year in style a short break seems ideal to get away from the crowds of Pattaya..

  1. Hi Talen, thanks for posting these dates, I’ll put them in my calendar. I’ve never been around during Songkran before and am interested to see what it’s like. I’ve heard very mixed reviews but the majority suggest exiting the city for a few days, as it tends to get out of hand. I’ll definitely be covering the camera in plastic!

  2. Snap, Songkran is my very favorite of all the Thai festivals. It is so much fun but you have to go into it with the right attitude.
