Recommendations regarding Mourning Period for His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej
Thailand is now in an official period of mourning following the passing of His Majesty King
Bhumibol Adulyadej.
In this regard, the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) would like all visitors to Thailand to
continue with their travel plans as normal. Furthermore, kindly be advised of the following:
• Many Thai people will be wearing black or white clothing as a sign of mourning. This is
not required of visitors but if possible, they should wear sombre and respectful clothing
when in public.
• Visitors should refrain from conducting any inappropriate or disrespectful behaviour.
• 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.
• The Government has asked for the cooperation from the entertainment venues; such as,
bars and nightclubs to consider the opening of their business operations during this time.
The decision will be made by the individual owners.
• Most of the traditional and cultural events 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.
• All transport, banks, hospitals and other public services will be operating as usual.
• The related authorities have stepped up safety and security measures for all Thais and
visitors to facilitate their travelling around the country.
• For any enquiries, please contact our TAT domestic offices or Tel.: 1672.

TAT would like to thank all visitors for their understanding and supporting Thailand during
this period of time.
