Junta to be asked to make August 11 extra holiday

Navy Commander-in-Chief Adm Narong Pipattansai will ask the National Council for Peace and Order to make August 11 an extra holiday, he said Thursday.

If approved, the August 12, which is Her Majesty the Queen's birthday anniversary, will become a long four-day holiday.

Narong said the long holiday proposal was aimed at boosting the sluggish tourism.
