Thailand 2012 Public Holidays Announced

The official list and dates of the 2012 bank holidays and public holidays in Thailand have been announced.

Interestingly, although, in Thailand, public holidays that fall on a Saturday or Sunday give rise to a day in lieu public holiday on the next regular working day (2004-02-06), for 2012 the list of official non-working public holidays in Thailand only lists one day in lieu public holiday for both December 31 (2011) and January 1 (2012) which fall on a weekend ("Substitution for New Year's Eve and New Year's Day (Saturday 31 December 2011 and Sunday 1 January 2012)").

Once again (2010-08-27), the aforementioned announcement confirms the removal of the Buddhist Lent public holiday, having been replaced, beginning in 2007 (B.E. 2550), by the holiday that always occurs a day before, Asarnha Bucha (2006-11-16).

The Royal Ploughing Ceremony public holiday, as usual (2009-04-26), will only be announced a couple of weeks before the actual event.
