Why Thai people love the King so much?

Why do the Thais love the king so much?

The answer is that, the king is the most beloved person of the kingdom. He has done so many things for people of Thailand.
First of all, let me tell you what the king said. On the day that the king was crowned, more than 60 years ago, the king said, "We will reign with righteousness. For the benefit of the Siamese people". He keeps his promise throughout his reign.

Second of all, having been on the throne for more than 60 years, the king has helped and supported a lot of poor people in Thailand, especially, the farmers and the ethnic minorities living in the mountainous areas. The major example of his works is the royal initiated projects, more than 4200 of which have been launched throughout the country to make sure that his children can rely on themselves.
What makes King Bhumibol popular
  • Royal Patronage - He spent the majority of his time during his working years on projects to improve the life of the poorest of people within Thailand. Notable projects include the Royal Project Foundation in Chiang Mai, Shrimp farm aerators and rain cloud seeding technologies.
  • Medicine - Promoting rural medical care to villages that lack sufficient access to medicine. His daughter Sirindhon now operates the majority of the medical projects
  • Music - He was a jazz musician. A notable discography includes H. M. Blues (His Majesty Blues). This includes various compositions written by King Bhumibol and his son Vajiralongkorn 
  • Photographer - He was constantly with his camera during his time visiting regions within Thailand. This created a large body of documentation that was useful to the operations of the projects.
  • Sports - His majesty was an avid sailor. This lead to projects to promote sports among the Thai people in order to maintain health and wellness. "King of Sports' mourned.
Now you can see why people of Thailand love their king.
