The restriction on live events and entertainment in Thailand following a month of mourning for His Majesty the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej will be lifted on 14 November 2016.All entertainment venues and festivals will resume operations from Monday 14 November and hotels will be able to hold celebrations and events. These may still be toned down as a sign of respect. Celebrations deemed extravagant such as those with fireworks will be restricted. Meetings and event venues will open as usual with the exception of reserved areas in Wat Phra Kaeo (Temple of the Emerald Buddha) and the Grand Palace, as they will be the venue of the Royal Funeral Rites. All other areas within the Grand Palace are now open to tourists and visitors.
