His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, Rama IX of Thailand is was very respected in Thailand. His Majesty died on 13 October 2016. We show our deepest respect.
Always talk nice about the king, and pay attention when the thai national anthem plays on the radio, cinema or in a park. The thai stand still if they are walking, if they are in the cinema they stand up. This is of respect for their king and as foreinger you should try the same. Every morning at 8am and evening at 6pm the song is played.
