The Thai New Year is getting off to a late start thanks to the global coronavirus pandemic.
Delayed from the height of the outbreak in mid-April, the first of its three holidays will take place July 27, creating a four-day weekend as July 28 is a holiday for the king’s birthday.
The remaining two days have yet to be announced.
Paywall: You’re outta here, Coconuts stories are free for all
We have removed our paywall on all Coconuts stories. This does not mean the end of COCO+ Membership at all, but the value proposition is changing.
Rather than being a transactional subscription – whereby you pay for access to content – it is now a true membership program – whereby Coconuts stories are free for everyone but super-fans can monetarily support our independent journalism, and get added member benefits.
If you'd like to support Coconuts, you can become a COCO+ Member for as little as US$5 per year. Thank you!
