Royal Bangkok

All over Bangkok you can find images of the King and Queen of Thailand. They mostly look quite young and energetic and King Bhumibol is often sporting a camera.
According to the police Thai authorities have blocked thousands of web pages deemed insulting to the monarchy in the past three months. Under Thailand’s strict lese majeste rules, insulting the monarchy can result in prison terms of up to 15 years.
