His Majesty visits Chitralada Palace

His Majesty the King briefly left Siriraj hospital yesterday afternoon and returned to Chitralada Palace, his official Bangkok residence.

The visit was unannounced and lucky members of the public were surprised and delighted when they were able to catch a glimpse of His Majesty in the royal motorcade.

His Majesty was not there to stay, but to visit several of his favourite projects.

First, he spent part of the late afternoon touring the royal dairy farm.

This is one of his royal projects set up in 1962 to select and improve dairy cattle breeds for Thailand and to promote dairy farming in the country.



After inspecting activities at the farm, His Majesty visited the Chitralada UHT milk processing plant which uses milk from 16 cows out of a herd of 43 Holstein-Friesian – a Dutch breed – which are being reared at the farm.

He then visited the chang ton museum, located in the palace compound.


The King viewed statues and spent time studying the history of the royal elephants kept by each king during the Chakri dynasty.

Elephants with ideal physical appearances were known as chang ton, and the healthiest of them were used by the kings of the time as a means of transport.
