Thailand lost its most revered and loved king recently and the city has not remained the same since the passing.
Tourists are reportedly touched by the amazing love the Thai people have for their late king, Bhumibol Adulyadej.
Shop owners have also attested to the fact that activities in the city had declined.
Vendors, who are city dwellers, said they are still mourning the late king but it has really been tougher for them, as their sales have dropped drastically.
A tourist was fascinated by the show of affection, said in England, people mourn when a monarch dies but not to the extent at which Thai people have taken it.
Another trader added that “we have no music due to the sadness of Thai people” and the city has lost its fun and convivial atmosphere.
Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul, Thailand tourism minister, has said the city would return to normalcy after the 30-day mourning of the late monarch.
She said some activities might still not resume after the mourning period due to personal feelings relating to the organisers but the majority of the activities would go on.
Wattanavrangkul said that Thailand needs tourists to come with understanding to commemorate and share the important moment with them.
“We want people to come to Thailand with understanding and share this important moment with us. We want people to know that Thailand is always a country that welcomes friends”, the minister added.
