The main public holiday in Thailand, as in most of Asia, is Chinese New Year Day.

It must be noted that traffic out of Bangkok and back into Bangkok on Public Holidays is very bad due to the city folk going to the country. This is also the best time to travel around the city centre of Bangkok !

Please note that most dates change each year.

Most hotels will charge for Gala Dinners which are normally held on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve.

This is compulsory and the cost can be quite expensive so make sure you confirm these details before booking your accommodation.
