Tourists don’t have to wear black on the beach


Black clothes are reportedly selling out all over Thailand as the late king’s loyal subjects attempt to express their grief. Tourists are also being encouraged to “dress respectfully”, in black, white or other sombre colours.

However, this is not mandatory. “Despite reports, tourists don’t have to wear black on the beach,” said Chris Lee, UK and Ireland head of marketing for the Tourism Authority of Thailand.
