CAVEAT: While four extra four holidays were announced by the Thailand Government for 2022 only two have been designated as “Bank holidays” by the BoT.

The four extra holidays for 2022 are Friday July 15th, Friday July 29th, Friday October 14th, and Friday December 30th (those that are designated as “Bank Holidays” by the BoT are highlighted in red).

Ashamed to be English since 23rd June 2016 when England voted for racism & economic suicide.

Disgusted that the UK is “governed” by a squalid bunch of economically illiterate, self-serving, sleazy and corrupt neo-fascists.

Some members may have noticed references in the media to three extra holidays having been granted for the APEC meeting from Wednesday 16th November 2022 to Friday 18th November 2022.

Please note that:

• These are not “National” holidays.

• These holidays only apply to Bangkok, Nonthaburi, and Samut Prakan.

• The BoT has stated that these holidays do NOT apply to financial institutions (even if in Bangkok, Nonthaburi, and Samut Prakan).

• As such, these holidays should have no impact on Udon Thani and its financial institutions (unless there should be a major influx of tourists from Bangkok, Nonthaburi, and Samut Prakan).
