Yep, yep, it’s that time of the year again. 

Plan to take the long New Year holiday easy instead of partying hard or going rogue? Consider a chill day at the museum or road trip to one of many historical parks, all of which will be free five days for everyone, Thai or farang. 

From Dec. 28 to New Year’s Day — Thais and non-Thais alike can enter all national museums and historical parks for free under a what’s presented as a “New Year’s gift” from the Fine Arts Department.

Thanks, Fine Arts Department.

Among the 11 historical parks nationwide, the highlights include the Si Satchanalai Historical Park in Sukhothai province, Phanom Rung Historical Park in Buriram province and an 11th-century Khmer temple, Sdok Kok Thom, in Sa Kaeo province.
