Public Holidays in Thailand – Year 2020

Below is the list of public holidays in Thailand for 2020. From the list, it seems like we have 8 long weekends and it is possible to have more because frequently the government likes to add extra holidays to holidays that fall on a Thursday or Tuesday.

The result of this is that many people will go out of Bangkok to have a short break from the big city scenery. Bangkok will become less busy, noisy, and touristy. You will enjoy Bangkok more. So, if you are planning to be in Bangkok next year, choose these periods. Well, if you plan to go somewhere else in Thailand, please note that it might be crowded in many places.
