Cuteness overload: ‘1600 Pandas’ finally comes to Bangkok

The cuddly “1600 Pandas” exhibition by French artist Paulo Grangeon will finally arrive in Bangkok in March after they have been flown around the world to spread the message about environmental preservation.

The one-of-a-kind 1,600 panda paper sculptures, which each have their own expressions and personalities, will be exhibited in Bangkok in March and April, according to the announcement on Facebook yesterday.

The Bangkok visit is part of their world tour, which was launched in 2008 by WWF-France and the artist to increase public awareness of panda conservation, and remind people of wildlife and environmental sustainability.

The number of pandas represents one of only 1,600 pandas that are left in the wild.

Although Central Embassy has been announced as the Thai organizer of the event, it has not been announced where the pandas will be exhibited, so fans and selfie enthusiasts must stay tuned for updates.
