The Office of the Secretary-General of the Cabinet of Thailand has issued a statement denying reports that the government of Thailand had extended to five days of public holidays on the occasion the Royal cremation of the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej in October 2017.

Last spring (24-Apr-2017), Thailand's Cabinet had declared Thursday, October 26, 2017, as an additional one-off non-working public holiday in Thailand, on account of that day's royal cremation of Thailand's late King Bhumibol Adulyadej, mirroring that, 5 years ago (24-Feb-2012, 07-Feb-2012, and 31-Jan-2012) when Thailand's Cabinet declared Monday, April 9, 2012, as an additional one-off non-working public holiday in Thailand, on account of that day's royal cremation of Her Royal Highness Princess Bejraratana Rajasuda at Sanam Luang, who had died more than 9 months before.

King Bhumibol Adulyadej died last October (13-Oct-2016) and the anniversary of his death has since been declared a new annual non-working public holiday in Thailand (11-Apr-2017).
