August 11 extra holiday

The National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) has approved the August 11 as an extra public holiday, in a bid to boost tourism and stimulate people's spending, said NCPO spokesman Col Winthai Suvaree Wednesday.

By making August 11 an official holiday, the public would have a four-day weekend on the occasion of the 82nd birthday of Her Majesty the Queen, which falls on August 12.
