Thirteen bridges over the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok and the metropolitan areas will be lit up in a festive air from October 13-25.

 

The Department of Rural Roads is decorating Rama III, Rama IV, Rama V, Rama VII, Maha Jesadabordinthanuson, Somdet Phra Pinklao, Phra Phuttha Yodfa, Phra Pok Klao, The King Taksin , Krung Thon Buri, Bangkok, Bhumibol 1 and Bhumibol 2 bridges to celebrate the royal barge procession and the royal coronation. The bridges will be lit up from 7pm to 10pm and 6pm to midnight on October 24.

 

The move is meant to show the unity of Thai people and project the beauty of the Chao Phraya River to promote tourism.

A couple local Thais may come to see. Not really a boost to tourism though.
