Visitor from United States said “And when we came to the palace, what we really expected to see was [you know], true Thai culture. And here we found a lot of love for their king who was just recently passed, which is just amazing to see how much really people care about him and just to see how incredible the culture and how long it stood especially the Emerald Buddha being an old as it is and well maintained, loved and respected. It’s really quite interesting for us being from all the way across the world” said.
Visitor from Australia said “I am visiting from Australia. I’ve been to Bangkok many times before, but this is my first visit to the Grand Palace. It is unfortunate that it has to be a such a sad time when the king has just passed away but I feel very honoured to see the palace and see the beautiful building and pay some respect to the king.”
Mrs. Juthaporn Rerngronasa, Chairperson of the Minister’s Tourism Working Group says “I think that all the foreign visitors, they come by their heart that they pay respect to our king and at the moment our Royal Grand Palace and the Temple is open as usual since the 1st of November, as well as all the festival in Thailand, all the entertainment and all the restaurants, will be opened after the 30th day of our mourning period. So it means from the 14th of November everything will be back to normal.”
