  • Description

    Large crowds gave a warm welcome when President Soekarno of Indonesia, accompanied by King Bhumibol and Queen Sirikit, visited Chiengmai, north Thailand, on April 18th. The President arrived in Thailand two days earlier to begin a 5-day State visit on the first leg of his world good-will tour.

    At Chiengmai, he was greeted by the provincial Governor, and afterwards watched a display of Thai dances with sword and drum.

    A beauty queen and two princesses presented garlands and bouquets to the visitor and to the King and Queen.

    From Thailand, President Soekarno flew to the U.S.A. continuing his tour.
