Chakri Day

The country celebrates Chakri Memorial Day, 6 April, to honour the nine kings who have ruled over Thailand under the present Chakri Dynasty.
The first king in the Chaki Dynasty, Rama I, founded the capital in Bangkok. The current ruler, His Majesty the King Bhumibol Adulyadej is the world’s longest reigning monarch. He has reigned since 9 June 1946.
Monday 7th is also a holiday as Chakri Day falls on a weekend
