Public Holidays in Pattaya

People of Thailand enjoy good number of public holidays most of which are based around festivals or national events. Thai people use the public holidays to take a break from work or visit relatives. During festivals, domestic traveling increases a lot. In case you plan to visit Thailand and particularly Pattaya during festival time, get your traveling and accommodation reservations in advance. Or else you would not get transportation and hotel rooms in the places you want to visit. And remember. Don't leave Bangkok for any other Thai town on the first day of a public holiday and return to the capital on the last day. It would be so crowdy that you would regret.
