Yes. Thai people love their present king to the max. It was said that he had done many extremely good deeds for the people of Thailand. His family, or the royal family, are regarded as the national high society but although being regarded as the top family in Thailand, they all dress very simple and very down to earth.Originally Posted by soma
I cannot tell you what good deeds did the king did but all his deeds are remembered and monumented. The song you heard in the cinema is not the national anthem but a song to sing and praise the king. If you look like a Thai national, you are expected to show a degree of respect to their beloved king. Do not play a fool or try to be funny with it because all Thais are very serious about their king. It is said to be lawful to kill a person in public showing utmost disrespect to the king.
