Most of the festivals in Thailand are based on the Lunar calendar, meaning that the dates change from year to year, unlike the Western calendar. When a public holiday falls on a weekend, government grants a compensatory non workday. For example, if a public holiday falls on Sunday, that would make Monday be a compensatory non workday. Please be aware that the dates of the Thailand public holidays for the year 2014 below is only an estimate.
