"Stamps of the Fatherly King" Exhibition in the Grand Postal Building

With the words “His reign has ended, but his legacy continues,” from Thailand Post president Smorn Terdthampiboon Thailand Post brings you the exhibition "Stamps of the Fatherly King". The exhibition stretches through history starting with the Siam-series first produced in 1947 to what has been named as the "longest stamp in the world”, just recently issued in April 2017.

Most stamps are shown as original alongside with a enlarged version for your convenience. This way you will be able to see every detail! Videos and animated films about the King’s travels upcountry, during which he’d reach out to people in the most remote places, give the exhibition a fresh and modern look. In total there are five rooms each with their own theme.

The exhibition "Stamps of the Fatherly King" is running on the ground floor of the Bangkok General Post Office, Charoen Krung Road, Bang Rak district. It is open for public viewing Tuesday to Sunday, 9am- 7pm, entry is free. Visitors will receive a postcard featuring a King Bhumibol stamp as souvenir.
