The first time I went to Thailand it was a bit weird seeing men rolling around the country with pink helmets on and wearing pink everything. So seeing a guy walking down a soi (street) with a pink umbrella. The reason is pink is the King’s color so everyone wears it. Over my years of going there I have worn pink helmets when on the back of bikes and not really thought much of it. If its good enough for the King it’s good enough for me.
