At this moment it looks like the whole nation will come to a grinding halt on 26th October, please act accordingly and show respect to the Thai people. This is a one in a lifetime event, not only for the Thai nation and it's people, but also for anybody visiting or living in Thailand at that moment. Act accordingly.

During the whole month of October, many Thai people will be wearing black or dark colored clothes as a tribute and to show respect for the Late King Bhumibol Adulyedej. 
On most days tourists are not expected to wear dark clothes but on the 26th October it is advisable to wear black or dark clothes and nothing too vibrant.
Most tourist attractions will be closed and the days surrounding the 26th October, most entertainment venues will have toned and tuned down their activities.

Please do 'like' my Koh Samui blog Facebook page and enjoy the beaches around the island or in front of your hotel or resort and get some well deserved rest and a break. If you're done resting or need something else to do, there's plenty of things on offer on and around Koh Samui, you can go snorkeling or diving or take a dive course. You can also enjoy some of the trips I recommend, like a half day gourmet lunch and snorkeling trip at the Southern part of Koh Samui or a photography trip where you get to see the most photo genetic spots on the island or go for a drinks tasting tour if you like a tipple or two.
