Very intersting and helpful, Leicester City football team bus tour of Bangkok, check it out!

(19 May 2016) Thousands of Thai football fans turned out on Thursday to cheer the players of English Premier League champions Leicester City as they toured Bangkok’s city centre in an open-top bus.
The team is owned by Thai businessman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, who arranged the visit as a thank you to local fans for their support during a season that saw unfancied Leicester spring one of the biggest surprises in the history of the game by claiming the title.
The appearance of the team, along with the coveted trophy, was a rare chance for Thai fans to feel part of a triumph from one of the sport’s most-watched leagues.
Thousands of them packed the pavements, bridges and walkways of Bangkok to celebrate as the bus passed slowly by.
Led by manager Claudio Ranieri, and with owner Srivaddhanaprabha well to the fore, the players reveled in the atmosphere of their second open-top procession in a week, following their parade through Leicester on Monday.
The absence of several of the club’s top names – including striker Jamie Vardy – clearly had no adverse impact on their box office appeal.
