2019 Public Holidays Thailand Service

The above is the list of 2019 public holidays declared in Thailand which includes federal, regional government holidays and popular observances. We also provide Thailand holiday calendar for 2019 in Word, Excel, PDF and printable online formats.

In the culture-rich nation of Thailand, public holidays are regulated by the government. Both private and public sectors observe nearly all holidays. Thailand, as of the year 2017, has a combined total of 17 public holidays observed every year by the public sector. Interestingly, the private sector is required to observe a mandatory 13 holidays, popularly known as bank holidays each year including Labor Day. The Bank of Thailand regulates this provision through the Labor Protection Act. The public holidays may incorporate other international events and observances.

The nation's cabinet may declare more public holidays. In the event where a public holiday falls on a weekend, a compensation holiday is offered on the following workday to cater for the coincidence. As for the observances, the country's government is responsible for regulation. However, observances are not considered holidays independently, and in some cases, only particular sectors of the nation observe them.

During religious holidays, the sale alcohol is prohibited countrywide except in duty-free shops located in the international airports. Through the Labour Protection Act of 1998, all employers are obliged to announce to their employees the schedule of the traditional public holidays in advance. Employers may agree with their employees on substituting days when public holidays are marked on a weekly day off, the failure to which it is punishable by law. Due to the nature and condition of work, employers and employees may settle on postponing the marking of the celebration to other preferred days or the employer is obliged to pay additional remuneration to cater for the holiday rather than allowing the employees remain off duty. A significant number of businesses and other sectors remain closed while others operate on limited schedules.
