The Royal Crematorium or Phra Main is the main part of The Royal Cremation Ceremony site which I surely think every people who visit the exhibition most want to see and take the picture. Long line of hundreds of people queue up to take a picture close to the Royal Crematorium can be seen along the day until the exhibition close at night. In the night, The Royal Crematorium (as I think) is the most beautiful scene of the day with lights and background of The Grand Palace.

Previous research (Source from BK Magazine: Fri, May 16, 2008) Thais age 10+ spent 4.4% of their spare time to read while in developed countries spent 30% of spare time. Thais schoolchildren read 7 lines of text a day, the official would like every person to read 12 lines a day (!?!?!). 2 is numbers of books Thais purchase per year compare to 60 books for Vietnamese.
