Thais Prepare for King's Birthday
Dec. 4, 2012 - Bangkok, Thailand - Students from BangkokThonburi University rehearse a play they will put on in honor of Bhumibol Adulyadej, the King of Thailand, whose portrait hangs behind them, at Sanam Luang. The King celebrates his 85th birthday Wednesday, Dec. 5. He is expected to make a rare public appearance and address the nation from Mukkhadej balcony of the Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall in the Royal Plaza. The last time he did so was in 2006. His birthday is a public holiday in Thailand and hundreds of thousands of people are expected to jam the streets around the Royal Plaza and Grand Palace to participate in the festivities.
