The Thai Cabinet, at its meeting earlier today, approved the cancellation of the upcoming July 27 bridge public holiday, thus breaking-up the upcoming string of 5 consecutive public holidays, set to run from Saturday, July 23, 2021, the Saturday before Asarnha Bucha Day, to King Maha Vajiralongkorn Phra Vajiraklaochaoyuhua’s Birthday, on Wednesday, July 28, 2021.

Late last year (2020-12-29), Thailand's Deputy government spokesperson, Traisuree Taisaranakul, had announced the declaration by Cabinet of a list of 8 additional 2021 national public holidays and regional public holidays for the upcoming calendar year 2021, to stimulate tourism, thus amending the recently-announced list of 2021 public holidays (2020-09-23).

Recall that the initial list of 2020 Thai public holidays (2019-07-31), was subsequently modified many times (2020-09-22, 2020-08-13, 2020-06-30, 2020-06-29, 2020-06-23, 2020-03-16).
