    We, now living in South India, have been travelling to Bangkok every year for the past 14 years or so one or twice and staying there for 1 months each time, feel the great sadness over the death of His Majesty. It is true, the Thai people do revere their King and are mourning deeply. We have cancelled our trip for this year for that reason.

      Oh That’s a shame but yes there is great sadness here he was a very well loved King. Thank you for your kind comment and I hope you will return in happier times 🙂

    I tried to explain to one of my housemates today what this means for Thailand…and had trouble finding the words. It is impossible to explain how much King Bhumibol is revered by the Thai people…it is truly something that must be experienced. I feel so fortunate to have lived in Thailand during his reign and to have seen that reverence first-hand. Today is a sad day for Thailand. It is a sad day for the world, really, to see such a leader pass.

      I know, it realy needs to be witnessed but there really was/is so much love for the King and it is like a ghost town here today shops and stalls shut people are really upset. I love how the Thais revere their King, as you know the National anthem is played at 8am and 6pm and other times and people stop and stand with respect it’s lovely and a very sad time for Thailand.
