Thais are in a mourning period for one year from the date of the King’s death Oct 13 2016. There are shrines and funeral bunting everywhere; the citizens dress in black. Soon they will come out of the mourning period. I think the shrines are supposed to come down and clothing to go back to normal as the reign of the new King takes precedence, but I expect a longer transition.
