Dear Travel Partners,
Later in October there will be the official Cremation Ceremony for our former King, Bhumibol Adulyadej, at the Grand Palace in Bangkok. Due to the huge numbers of people wishing to pay respects the Grand Palace will be closed from 1-29 October. Also closed during this period will be the nearby Reclining Buddha Temple plus the Klong (canal) tours will not operate. Alternative tour options will be provided by Asia World.
Early next month Asia World will be attending the WTM (World Travel Mart) in London from 6-8 November. Please let us know if you will also be attending and would have time to meet our representatives on the Thailand stand (table 13).
One more important point I wanted to mention, is that to ensure a smooth meet and greet in Thailand, the meeting points have been changed for Bangkok and Phuket airports effective immediately. More details can be found in the Asia World news section.
