Avatar of CTN News



BANGKOK – The “mission impossible” of the Mu Pa footballer rescue from Chiang Rai’s Tham Luang Caves has been transformed into an interactive exhibition “Tham Luang Incredible Mission: the Global Agenda” opening today at Siam Paragon in Bangkok.

Hosted by the Culture Ministry, the mall’s Lifestyle Hall is converted into Tham Luang where the 12 boys and their coach was trapped for 19 days.

Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngam will preside over the show which runs until September 9.

The show is divided into seven zones covering the mission involving thousands of rescuers and volunteers of different nationalities.

The actual rescue equipment used in the operation is also on display.


Photography and media coverage is displayed. A bronze sculpture of Navy Seal Saman Kunan, who died during a diving operation inside the cave, is also on display.

There is the huge painting, depicting all the heroes, by national artist Chalermchai Kositpipat, and work by the sculptor Sarawut Khummoonchai and their teams.



Former Chiang Rai Governor Narongsak Osottanakorn, who was the rescue operations chief, Naval Special Warfare Command chief Apakorn Yukongkaew and Dr Pak Loharnchun recall the 18-day rescue operations at the exhibition opening.

Published by the National Archives, the ministry also launched a Thai-language book about the global rescue mission.

After closing in Bangkok, the show will tour the Country.
