The app can be "downloaded" at https://th.usembassy.gov/kinamerican-app/ and the code APR1LFOODS entered at checkout for a 50 per cent discount on all orders during this month.

On April Fool’s Day in 2016, the embassy had posted an ad for a “feline welfare specialist” who is fluent in Thai, English and Felinese (cat language). The advert on Facebook won a good response from netizens.
