Farewell Beloved King

Today, Thais and admirers of Thailand's late monarch are bidding a final farewell to the beloved King Bhumibol Adulyadej. After one year of mourning his passing, the funeral processional is today with the cremation ceremony being held tonight. Over a quarter million people are surrounding the area in Bangkok where the rituals are being held, while many others are either making their way to temples to pray or staying home to watch the rites of passage on television or through live streaming.
