Also, despite the chart, Pattaya has its own rules about Songkran. In Pattaya the water splashing continues up to April 19 - with Thursday, April 19 being the major water splashing day.

The King's Birthday holiday, December 5, will continue to be a public holiday.

Is there any country that actually has more official public holidays than Thailand? I used to think we did well in Hong Kong which celebrated British and Chinese holidays. But that came to just 17 days.

The banks were closed today,the ninth. It looks like a holiday today and tomorrow also. So do you think a bank in Central Festival might be open today( Sunday).? I only have 40 baht left and I don’t have an atm card. Now I know what the boys feel,lol karma I guess.

Of course they were closed. The 9th was Saturday. Today, 10 December, is Sunday. Banks are always closed on Saturdays and Sundays.

Bank mini branches are open Saturdays and Sundays, though. I don't know if banks will be open today, Sunday, in Central Festival, but if they are closed, the mini branches at the various Big-C and Tesco Lotus main stores will be open.

Why did you let your cash get down to only 40 baht before you started looking for an open bank branch?

Well I’m not from around these parts. But thanks, I’ll check out Central first and if they’re closed on to Big C.
I usually withdraw about 15,000 baht and it last almost a week. I just happened to let it get down heading into a Saturday, the day I like to go bar hopping.

Yep, they were all open. Now I can help support the bars in Sunee. Although I hate being one of the only ones in the bar, which is why I would have liked going out last night. However Friday night wasn’t too busy, maybe all the days are the same now. Where the hell is high season?
