Both tourists and expats are being advised to dress respectfully on Friday (July 28) to mark the 65th birthday of HM King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun, while the nation still remains in mourning.
Tourists and foreigners are being advised to wear light colours but also a black bow, which has become a symbol of respect in remembrance of King BhumibolAdulyadej, who dies on 13th October 2016.
The request follows a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office ordering all government officials and personnel to wear mournful clothes on HM the Kings birthday.
In the same statement the Prime minister also ordered officials in all provinces in Thailand as well as Thai consulates and temples in other nations to give a food offering to Buddhist monks on the day of HM the Kings birthday.
