Thousands of domestic tourists have flocked to Pattaya and Koh Larn in Chonburi to spend their holidays during a 3-day-long weekend, from September 24th to September 26th following the official approval of Mahidol Day.

 

Yesterday (September 24th) was Mahidol Day which the Thai cabinet had approved for a special holiday on Friday.

 

All government offices, notably including Immigration, were closed for the day. It was NOT a dry day, however, so sales of alcohol were allowed. (Although, unfortunately, bars are still legally closed nationwide in Pattaya and Thailand, so only purchasing at a store and bringing home was allowed.) Some more information on the holiday is below.

Have to say I didn't notice a big increase in traffic yesterday - local restaurant I often use for lunch was quieter than usual and mid afternoon traffic around Big C and Big C itself did not seem as busy as has been. 

Perhaps I was just lucky with my timing?

I always notice it based on driving around...... and the aggressive nature of the driving one sees coming into and leaving town.
