Large crowds welcome Suu Kyi as she travels Thailand during world tour
Pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi is greeted by supporters during a visit to an immigration center in the migrant workers community outside of Bangkok on May 31, in Mahachai, Thailand. Suu Kyi hopes to help improve the rights of Myanmar nationals living in Thailand. The Thailand trip is her first trip outside of Burma in 24 years as she attends the World Economic Forum on East Asia. Previously she was either under house arrest or too fearful to leave her home country incase the government didn't allow her return.Paula Bronstein / Getty Images
