Following the death of the Thai King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the world’s longest reigning monarch, Dutch tourists to Thailand were warned to avoid any discussion or declaration concerning the royal family.
This directive was issued by foreign ministry and the Dutch government also recommended its citizens to abide by the same and adhere to instructions of the local authorities, respect their culture, customs and the restrictions followed by the local people. Thailand will follow a one-year mourning in respect of the deceased King.
The Dutch foreign ministry advised tourists to follow events on local media and to carry their IDs in any of any situation. With the King’s death at the age of 88, a great seven-decade reign comes to an end, putting Thailand into an uncertain future! All entertainment events have been stopped for 30 days. The Dutch foreign minister Bert Koenders was present at Bangkok during the time of the King’s death.
