National Day and Father’s Day

In Thailand, people celebrate their National Day on the birth anniversary of the world’s longest-serving Monarch, the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand.

He started his reign in 1946 as the 9th monarch of Thailand from the Chakri Dynasty and ended with his death in October 2016.

He is also known as Father of Nation, so Thai people also celebrate King’s birth anniversary as Father’s Day. During his 70-year reign, Thailand underwent a formidable transformation from an underdeveloped country to an upper middle-income country.

Before the late King Adulyadej, Thailand used to commemorate independence day on June 24 the day in 1932 on which Thailand became a constitutional monarchy.

But during the late King Adulyadej’s reign in 1960, the day changed from 24 June to 5 December on the same day as the birth anniversary of the late King.

Late King Bhumibol Adulyadej due to his development works and love and devotion for the people of Thailand known as the Development King in the world.

Furthermore, due to his lifelong work on sustainable soil management, December 5 has been declared as World Soil Day to commemorate the achievement of the late King and to raise awareness of the importance of healthy soil for many purposes.
