“King Chulalongkorn achieved many things for the benefit of the Thai people – especially, he abolished slavery and he led our nation to form relations with foreign countries,” he said.

The mass ceremony last night followed Governor Phakaphong leading a formal ceremony in the laying of wreaths and the paying of respects to a statue of the revered King in front of Phuket Provincial Hall at 9:30am yesterday morning.
