- The world is welcome to visit Thailand during this historic period. Visitors to the kingdom at this time will get to see the great love and reverence that the Thai people have for their beloved King in the way they mourn and pay their tribute.

- During this time, Thailand is thankful for our friends coming to share their sadness and pass on their condolences. This gesture of empathy and friendship will be remembered by the people of Thailand for decades to come.

- Some of the traditional festivals may be taking place as usual although the celebrations may be omitted or subdued as a mark of respect, or the events may be dedicated to the memory of the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej. Some festivals could be cancelled if it is felt they are not appropriate with the public mood.

- Entertainment venues may be closed and certain entertainment events and activities may be cancelled or omitted, or subdued as deemed appropriate, as a mark of respect. Visitors are advised to check local media regularly for announcements and updates.

- We also would like to request that the solemnity of the Royal Cremation is observed, and visitors should refrain from conducting any inappropriate or disrespectful behaviour.
