    If you are planning a trip to Thailand, you should always be aware of the major national holidays being celebrated in the country.

This said, you should also know that although businesses and government offices close on public holidays, most tourist attractions and shops almost never close for any national holidays.

The reason being that when there are long weekends coupled with national holidays, most Thais look to travel around their country and this means more business and earnings for places of tourist attractions and shops.

As a business person, it is important you know when there are Thai bank holidays so that you can arrange your important business transactions accordingly.
