Time in Thailand!
In Thailand, as in some other Asian Buddhist countries, the year is calculated according to the Buddhist era (BE, Buddhist era, Buddha Sakarat). The calendar begins with the death of the Buddha in 543 BC. and has been used in Thailand since 1912.
It is therefore not surprising to write in Thailand in 2019, the year 2562. The conversion is actually quite simple, you added to the Christian era 543 years to do so. The official start of the year in Thailand is the 1st of January, even if you celebrate the Thai New Year Songkran only from the 13th to the 15th of April.
