Tourists express their understanding of Thailand’s loss by preparing food for mourners

While some travelers are clearly open about their disappointment that Thailand has suspended all festivities for at least a month, this tourist couple don’t seem to mind and expressed their understanding by volunteering.

Their photo was captured by Thai-English actress Natalie Davies, who also volunteered at the kitchen of Ruam Katanyu Foundation.

“These two foreigners saw that we were preparing food for the soldiers, police officers, staff members, and the general public, so they stepped in to help,” Davies wrote on Instagram.

The Thai-English actress added there are many more foreigners who want to help Thais deal with their loss.

“I thank you for the Thai people. Thank you so much for your kindness and being very understanding. We all hope you’ll come back to visit us again,” she wrote.

These two may be the type of “quality tourists” that Thailand has needed all along.
