The Royal Thai Government has announced that the Royal Cremation for the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej is scheduled for October 25-29. An advisory regarding travel to Thailand during this time has also been released.

Bangkok’s Grand Palace and the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, as the venue for the cremation, will be closed. In some areas transportation could be affected and, as a result travellers may experience delays and some routes may be closed to traffic.

The Tourism Authority of Thailand recommend that any visitors with travel or tourism plans reconfirm with agents and check local media regularly. Travellers should also follow the advice of the local authorities and keep in touch with announcements and updates. 

Many Thai people will be wearing black clothes as a sign of mourning. This is not required of visitors but, if possible, they should wear respectful clothing when in public. It has also been requested that the solemnity of the Royal Cremation is observed, and visitors should refrain from behaving inappropriately or disrespectfully.
