What Should Tourists do in Thailand during HM King Bhumibol Mourning Period

During the period of national mourning in Thailand, many businesses are open and operating as usual. However, some festivals and activities have been postponed or cancelled. Other events may proceed as planned, but be toned down as a show of respect. In addition, it is requested (but not required) that visitors wear respectful attire and behave appropriately.

To assist you in understanding the expectations of tourists visiting Thailand we have created the following infographic, followed by a list of statuses of attractions and events.

Thank you for your understanding and patience during the mourning period.
