With the passing of the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej, some attractions and events in Thailand may be closed, according to the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT).

Starting from 17 October, The Thai Transportation Operators Association, TAT and the Royal Thai police are providing free bus services to the location. More information on the transport services can be found here. The HHWT team will also like to express our sincerest condolences to Thailand during this difficult time.
