There are currently more than 57000 Thai workers and 8000 Thai immigrants in Taiwan. Since Taoyuan has the highest density of people from Thailand, the Taoyuan City Government has set up a public altar for Thai workers and immigrants to mourn the death of Thailand's King Bhumibol Adulyadej, who died at the age of 88. It'll be open to public until October 30th. This is not Thailand. It's Taoyuan City in Taiwan. The city government set up a memorial site at the old train station lobby for people to pay their final respects to the late Thailand King Bhumibol. Taoyuan City has the most numerous Thai population in Taiwan, the city has nearly 16,000 Thai migrants and over 2,000 Thai immigrant residents. ==THAI RESIDENT== Because I was married to here, I cannot go back (to pay respect). My child has to go to school, although I want to go back. ==THAI RESIDENT== The whole world is saddened, because our King is very good. He is the world's longest-reigning monarch. Seventy years! We really love this King. We really love this King. Thailand's King Bhumibol passed away on October 13. In order to assist Thai migrants and immigrant residents to pay their final respects, the memorial site will open till October 30. ==CHANG PEI-LING, Foreign Worker Affairs Section Chief, Taoyuan Dept. of Labor== To assist the Thai residents and workers, we obtained authorization from the Thailand Trade and Economic Office in Taipei. We obtained the King's photo, and were allowed to set up a place for memorial purpose. Many Thai friends signed their condolences for the late King. The signatures will be collected and submitted to the Thailand Trade and Economic Office in Taipei, and will finally be delivered to Thailand's Royal Palace.
