King Chulalongkorn arrived in Norway on 5 July 1907. The King’s travel in Norway with his company of 15-20 people lasted 28 days. The journey stretched from the northern locality of Nordkapp to Flekkefjord in the south.
Throughout the visit the King wrote letters to Her Royal Highness Princess Nibha Nobhadol, his daughter and personal secretary. The collection of His Majesty’s correspondence was later published as the book “Klai Ban” or as entitled in English “Far From Home”.
