Travel implications and recommendations
During the month of October 2017, a period of mourning will be observed in Thailand. From October 25-29, the Thai government, together with the Palace, will host an official Royal Cremation Ceremony around the Grand Palace and the Royal Plaza in Sanam Luang. A post-Royal Ceremony exhibition will be held at the Grand Palace from November 1-30, 2017. Over a million visitors are expected to visit the area during this period.
Travelers wishing to pay their respects will be able to access the Grand Palace area by foot and should be aware that there will be road closures during these events. Visitors who wish to enter the exhibition should wear black clothing, ideally long pants or skirts, and shirts with sleeves. While some may consider a black ribbon worn with brighter colored clothing acceptable, itʼs not encouraged.
