Tourism During Public Holidays in 2023

If you are planning a visit to Thailand during one of the public holidays, be advised that tourist attractions and hotels are quite crowded during these times. You should also account for the fact that banks and government buildings usually remain closed.

However, many businesses remain open on public holidays. So you will still be able to enjoy trips to the mall, restaurants, and popular tourist attractions.

For the reasons above, make sure you book flights, accommodation, and any visits to attractions in advance. We also suggest that you arrive as early as possible for all travel arrangements.
