Sept 4 and 7 approved as Songkran holidays

The cabinet has given the green light to approve Sept 4 and Sept 7 as substitute Songkran holidays, creating another four-day holiday next month.

A source at its meeting said the cabinet on Thursday approved two more public holidays — Friday, Sept 4 and Monday, Sept 7 — as substitute days for Songkran holidays, which were earlier put on hold due to the outbreak of Covid-19. 

This would create a four-day public holiday during Sept 4-7.

Before the cabinet meeting, Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngam and Culture Minister Itthiphol Kunplome disclosed that the meeting might consider the two remaining days of Songkran holidays after it earlier approved July 27 as a public holiday, Thai media reported.
