Thailand Panda World Tour
There are about 1.600 Pandas that touched down in Thailand earlier this month for the Panda World Tour wich has proved to be a big success with the panda ‘flash mobs’ attracting large crowds wherever they have been on display. The number of pandas in the exhibition, 1,600, represent the estimated number of giant pandas left in the wild.
