The people of Thailand are noted for their warm welcome and an exquisite sense of hospitality and style. This is even more evident when if you happen to be in the country during the King's birthday celebrations.
H.M. King Bhumibol Adulvadej celebrates his royal birthday on the 5th December. For an entire week, there are various festivities and religious ceremonies to observe and participate in. On the day of his birthday, thousands gather to light candles and sing songs in honour of the King, an event led by the Prime Minister and broadcasted live across Thailand. This is a great time to visit Thailand and see the country come together in celebration for the King's birthday.
Book a holiday to Thailand and experience National parks rich with wildlife, mountain ranges with their resident hill tribes, and pristine beaches make much of Thailand a place that can still be enjoyed in unspoiled tranquillity.
