UNESCO named Bangkok as the World Book Capitol 2013. To mark the occasion, there was a special alms ceremony at Sanam Luang, near the Grand Palace, on Tuesday morning. Hundreds of monks walked through a sea of people, who instead of presenting the monks with food (as is normally done) presented the monks with books, which will in turn will be donated to literacy projects in Bangkok.
