Thailand Public Holidays 2021 (B.E. 2564)

Acclime is happy to bring you the list of recently announced commercial holidays for 2021 (B.E. 2564), which number 22 in total. As the dates can be fluid in Thailand, particularly in these times of pandemic, we recommend you bookmark this page and revisit to check for changes. It is possible that there will also be additional holidays for specific regions in order to encourage domestic tourism. We will update whenever changes are announced.

Please note that the following list represents commercial holidays only. Thailand has slightly different calendars of holidays for banks (Bank holidays) and civil servants (Govt. holidays). We have focussed on the public holidays which apply to private businesses, i.e. commercial holidays.

Where a holiday falls on a weekend there is generally a substitution day on the following Monday. Employers are legally bound to allow a minimum of 13 of the 22 days. You can read more about employee holiday entitlement in our Work hours and holidays in Thailand article.
