  Tens of thousands of people are expected to travel domestically using buses during the upcoming three-day holiday weekend from December 10th to 12th, according to the state-run Transport Co Ltd.

Sanyalak Panwattanalikhit, managing director of the Transport Company, said that the Transport Company has about 3,000 trips to facilitate travelers between December 10th (Constitution Day) to December 12th.

Sanyalak said over 227,386 people, accounting for 23,233 trips, traveled during the last long holiday from December 2nd to December 5th, which was Father’s Day.

To prevent the spread of Covid, all passengers are recommended to comply with Transport Company regulations such as wearing masks and social distancing.

The Constitutional Day is a celebration of the day Thailand adopted the first permanent constitutional monarchy in 1932.

Thailand’s Constitution Day is a national holiday that falls on December 10th. This year, the day falls on Saturday; therefore, the following Monday will serve as a holiday instead. All government offices, including immigration offices, schools, banks, and some commercial establishments are closed.
