Staff from the Embassy of Denmark in Thailand spent their Sunday on 24 September biking around Bangkok to promote “International Car-Free Day.”

In cooperation with Bangkok Metropolitan Administration and The Governor Chadchart Sittipunt, the embassy went for a ride among the big Thai skyscrapers.  The governor even got to take the ambassador for a ride in a typical ‘Christiania bike.’
