The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) would like to advise the following during this time of sadness for the Thai people:

  • Most mourners in the country will be dressed in black or white clothing as a display of the reverence to our Beloved King and as part of Thai culture, but this is not mandatory, especially for visitors.
  • Tourists should kindly wear appropriate and respectable attire in public.
  • Visitors should refrain from conducting any inappropriate or disrespectful behavior.
  • The Government has asked for the cooperation from entertainment venues to refrain from conducting any boisterous performances.
  • Meetings, receptions and other related occasions taking place within the premises can be held as usual, but may be adjusted in appropriateness as a mark of respect for the mourning period.
  • Most of the traditional, religious and cultural events including MICE and weddings will be taking place as usual, although the celebrations may be changed for appropriateness as a mark of respect, or the events may be dedicated to the memory of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
  • Tourist attractions will be open as usual with the exception of Wat Phra Kaeo (Temple of the Emerald Buddha) and the Grand Palace, as they will be the venue of the Royal Funeral Rites (will re-open on 1 November 2016). All transport, banks, shopping areas, hospitals and other public services will be operating as usual.
  • We would like to recommend that any visitors with travel or tourism plans reconfirm with agents and check local media regularly as well as follow the advice of the local authorities for announcements and updates.
  • Many people will be travelling from the provinces to Bangkok during the mourning period to pay their respects to the King. This may cause some congestion in certain parts of the city as well as to commuters. Visitors planning travel and trips should stay updated via the local media about road closures or delays.
  • Due to the commuting of the people during this time, the safety and security measures for all Thais and visitors is a major priority of the related authorities.
  • For any enquiries, please contact our TAT domestic and overseas offices or the TAT Call Centre Tel.: 1672.
