Perhaps the whole world has heard about the unfortunate event that 12 young football players experienced recently when they got trapped inside a cave in Thailand. Siam Paragon, one of the upmarket shopping malls in the country, decided to make an exhibit to show people what really happened and also to serve as a warning for those who are planning to venture into dangerous caves. Even guests staying at a family connecting room in Sukhumvit went to see the exhibit in its full glory.
There is a tunnel that children can try to pass through while dripping water can be heard in the background. According to a 78 year old shopper who tried the tunnel, SupiraPungkanon, the tunnel would be most suitable to set an example for children to let them know it is not a good idea to go on adventures on their own.
The tunnel is made of plastic and spans 10 meters. It was painted with murky brown which is similar to the actual cave in Chaing Rai province of Thailand. The unfortunate incident that happened to the football players of the Moo Pa team along with their coach caught the attention of the international news. This is also the inspiration of the exhibit called ThamLuang Incredible Mission: The Global Agenda. The boys and their coach were trapped inside the cave for two weeks.
According to the manager of the ministry of culture, SalineeChuman, they took pride in the success of the rescue because it showed the true essence of being a Thai. The whole community united in order to be of help during the trying time. The exhibit will be shown until the 9th of September. Three days prior to the closing of the exhibit, a gratitude party will be held in order to give thanks to everyone who helped including people from more than 100 nations.
Visitors can book a family connecting room in Sukhumvit in order to witness the exhibit where they can see all the equipment used for the rescue mission. There is a mannequin proud with a dive suit, underwater robots, thermal blankets and edible gel that the bys consumed in order to survive hunger. The exhibition will also be featured in other parts of Thailand while movies and books are already on the works.
