A total of 999 hilltribe people from nine tribes in the Northern highland region arrived at Hua Lamphong Railway Station in Bangkok yesterday morning (Nov 9).

“The father went to see us at our hometown. Today, we came down to see our father,” said Wipa Phaya-ornarong, 47, a Lisu hilltribe woman, speaking on her arrival.

Ms Wipa said the hilltribe people have long appreciated the King’s generosity and kindness.

The trip from Chiang Mai to Bangkok for the ethnic people, and their transport in Bangkok to the Dusit Maha Prasat Throne Hall where the late King’s body is being kept, was arranged by the government.

The nine tribes paying homage were Karen, Hmong, Lahu, Akha, Myan, Lisu, Lua, Khamu and H’tin, all part of the “999 hearts to pay respects to the King” initiated by the Ministry of Social Development and Human Security.

Meanwhile, Myanmar’s first civilian president Htin Kyaw paid his last respect to the late King yesterday morning. He also signed a book of condolences, citing him as a King of friendliness for having forged many ties with foreign countries during his reign.

Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte, also in Bangkok, went to the Throne Hall and wrote in the condolence book, expressing his sympathies to Thais.
