Thai National Anthem

The Monarchy is serious business in Thailand and so is the National Anthem. Thai children are raised with these values and as a tourist you should not mock these. 

2 Times a day the national anthem plays, at 8 am and 6 pm. Be it at schools, the cinema or other public places, the Thai will stand still for a minute and expect you to do so too.

When visiting the busy Sunday night bazaar in Chiang Mai all of a sudden the national anthem blasted out of speakers. Thai and tourist alike stopped for a minute and went silent. It shows the respect and proud of this nation.
