1600 Pandas+ in Bangkok

Last I heard pandas were indigenous to China so why are 1,600 of them making their way around Bangkok?

Shockingly, 1,600 is the number of pandas left in the wild, and these cute little papier-mache figures are touring the city to raise awareness for panda conservation.

The title, 1600 Pandas+ refers to the increase in the population of wild giant pandas, of 17%, since the inception of this project, and to the increased public awareness of panda conservation.

I went to visit the pandas at Sanam Luang-the first leg of their journey through the city.

You can catch the main exhibition at Central Embassy from 24th March-10th April, 10.00am-10.00pm.

Central Embassy, 1031 Ploenchit road, Pathumwan, Bangkok 10330

Nearest BTS is Ploenchit station.
