Dates of Anniversary of the Death of King Bhumibol (observed)
This national holiday in Thailand is held annually on 13 October.
If 13 October falls on a weekend, the holiday will be observed on the following Monday.
The day commemorates the death of the late King of Thailand, Bhumibol Adulyadej.
Known as Rama IX, he reigned Thailand since 9 June 1946 until his death on 13 October 2016, making him the longest-reigning monarch ever in Thailand's history.
Despite being a constitutional monarch, and not legally being allowed a role in politics, Bhumibol made several decisive interventions in the Thai political sphere and has been credited with helping facilitate Thailand's transition to democracy in the 1990s.
