The Royal Household Bureau will bar mourners from paying tribute to King Bhumibol Adulyadej at the Grand Palace for two days, on Dec 1-2, for a merit-making ceremony to mark the 50th day of the passing of the late King.
Sales of tickets for tourists to visit the Grand Palace on these two days will also be suspended, the statement said.
There will also be a merit-making ceremony on Dec 5, King Bhumibol's birthday, and on Dec 6 at the Grand Palace.
Tourists will not be allowed entry on these days either. However, mourners will be allowed to pay tribute to the late King at the Dusit Maha Prasat Throne Hall inside the Grand Palace as normal, the statement said.
