  General Post Office (anno 2013)

 

Thailand

In 2013, the building of the General Post Office in Bangkok, which was built in 1940 in the Neoclassic style (fig.), was renovated to mark 10 years of Thailand Post, and the 130th anniversary of postal service in Thailand.

 

For the inauguration of the renovated General Post Office, which took place on 4 August 2013, the building was decorated with a giant flag of Thailand as well as with an elongated banner of the personal royal flag of Queen Sirikit (fig.), who also has her birthday in August, whilst the event itself was presided over by Princess Sirinthon.

Outside, the busy car park in front of the building has made way for a more fresh and cozy plaza.
