    New Sanam Luang by 2011 

    The landscape around Sanam Luang area will be permanently re-organized and renovated for the King’s 84th Birthday celebration in 2011.

    Bangkok’s Deputy Governor, Mr Theerachon Manomaiphiboon said the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) would re-organize the area around the Grand Palace and Sanam Luang where peddlers would be strictly forbidden in the long run. In the short term, the BMA will ask for cooperation from the vendors to keep out of the area during the King’s Birthday event on 3-5 December this year.

    Moreover, the landscape around Sanam Luang will be renovated under the Strong Thailand project’s funding, to be completed in time for His Majesty’s 84th Birthday in 2011. The local police will cooperate with the district office in tightening security measures to suppress rising crimes while homeless will be ordered out of the area. (NNT)
