Royal Barge Procession – Nov.2016

Date: TBA
Location: Riverside (Around Grand Palace)

On the 9th of November the Chao Praya River will play host to the Royal Barge Procession, an ancient tradition revived by current King Bhumibol Adulyadej. A very unusual site, these barges have only made an appearance 16 times in the last 65 years. 52 boats are taking part in celebration of the King’s 85th Birthday this year, and the event will start at 15:00 from near the Rama VIII Bridge, ending at Wat Arun at 16:00. You can book tickets, or try and find a spot along the river, although the popularity of the royal family means that prime viewing spots will taken from early morning. There are also two full dress rehearsals on the 2nd and 6th of November if you can’t make the official event.
