The government of Thailand has announced the date of the 2016 Royal Ploughing Ceremony annual non-working public holiday, thus completing the previously-released partial list of official annual non-working public holidays in Thailand for the upcoming calendar year 2016.
As per the aforementioned announcement, the 2016 Royal Ploughing Ceremony non-working public holiday will be observed on Monday, May 9, 2016. This completes the previously-released partial list of 2016 public holidays in Thailand which was released last summer (2015-07-11).
This is the fifth consecutive year (2014-12-08, 2013-12-26, 2012-11-30 and 2011-12-08) that the Royal Ploughing Ceremony public holiday is announced well in advance. Previously, the Royal Ploughing Ceremony public holiday was usually declared (2009-04-26) a couple of weeks before the actual event, months after the remainder of the list of Thai non-working public holidays had been announced (2011-08-20 and 2010-08-27).
