Long Holiday for Lao New Years 2016

When planning your travels during Lao New Years (Pii Mai) this year, keep in mind the long holiday week. This year, Pi Mai Lao runs from April 13-16 bringing the total break to six days including Saturday and Sunday, the longest in years.

As April 16 falls on Saturday, therefore April 12 (Tuesday) will be a public holiday in compensation for the Saturday, according to the announcement from the Government Office.
