Preparing for the Coldplay Concert in Bangkok

It’s gonna be my first time to watch Coldplay live, my first time to watch a foreign act overseas, and my first time to go to Thailand. Me and Sharlyne did a little research on what not to bring to avoid additional inconveniences that we may experience on the day of the concert.

We found a website (originally written in Thai) that contains information that we need.
