Thailand's Government Cabinet, once again at the request of the Ministry of Tourism and Sports, Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul, has declared Monday, May 4, 2015, as an additional, one-off non-working public holiday in Thailand, to create a five-day period of public holidays from the annual Thai public holiday of National Labour Day to the annual, May 5, Coronation Day non-working public holiday of Thailand.

Last autumn (2014-10-03 and 2014-10-10), Thailand's Government Cabinet had, also at the request of the Ministry of Tourism and Sports, Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul, declared Friday, January 2, 2015, as an additional, one-off non-working public holiday in Thailand, to create a five-day period of public holidays following the annual New Year's Day non-working public holiday.

Although the annual, May 1st, National Labour Day non-working public holiday of Thailand is not observed by the Government sector of Thailand, the aforementioned declaration of Monday, May 4, 2015, as an additional, one-off non-working public holiday in Thailand, does apply to the Thai government sector, and will be in addition to the official list and dates of the bank holidays and non-working public holidays in Thailand, for the calendar year 2015, which were announced this past summer (2014-07-13).
