On Tuesday, the Thailand cabinet approved eight special holidays to encourage local tourism for 2021.

According to deputy government spokesperson Traisuree Taisaranakul, Feb 12 will be a holiday for the Lunar New Year, which normally is not an official holiday.

Other special holiday included April 12th as another Songkran holiday and July 27th as a holiday instead of the Buddhist Lent.

In February, April, July, and October, some of the activities accepted combining weekends include long holidays.

The newly planned holiday was intended to improve tourism. Government leaders and private companies could determine whether or not to spend special holidays so that their activities wouldn't affect, Traisuree said.

Thailand welcomed 3,065 international tourists in November, the second month since long-stay visitors had been barred from sustaining COVID-19 infections in April, according to official information.
