Wow, now also June 3 became a National Holiday,  So, now 20 Public Holidays in Thailand!  .."Most thai are working anyway"??  Why most thai are working on  'PUBLIC HOLIDAYS?. For a double pay? A public holiday is an public holiday. Right? Plus the annual holidays. More than 6 weeks holidays for thai. That is great!

 I'd love to get a job in a Thai Embassy somewhere- you'd be on paid holiday more than you'd work with both countries' holidays off.

...How many people he thinks do really benefit from those holidays ?Most Thai's are working anyway.Funny that a retired expat who doesn't do much except complaining all the time ,is concerned about other people's holidays .How many days off,apart from public holidays,do they get in your country?

Jor12 | 23 May 2019 - 06:06:53

All countries have holidays for one reason or another. Isn't  that the reason why you are here? Other than to whinge about everything?

Kurt | 22 May 2019 - 16:55:05

Wow, and don't forget the additional/supplementary holidays when the real holidays is on a Saturday or Sunday. On top of that the normal annual holidays.  Thai people are very, very good off with their holidays. Great country with a relaxing working life.
