    ^ Would you attend the official Procession Nels or would one of the trials be sufficient ?

    ^ I'd definitely aim for the big jobbie Gav...it is absolutely spectacular...but if you can't make that yeah, have a crack at one of the trials....they are less crowded...

    I am sure Paer would love you for it....it really strikes to the heart of Thai people, I saw many people so overcome with pride they were crying in sheer awe (or is that oar..555) of it...such a beautiful ceremony

    I've visited the Royal barges and took photos when they were at dock, but I've never seen them out on the water. Thais do seem to enjoy their official ceremonies. I try to avoid them like the plague.

    I’m hoping to return to Thailand in October so I’ll pencil that event in. Thanks SE.

    The Royal Barge Museum houses all the boats and is open most days.
    Best of all is its location in the klongs and shaty towns across the river from the Royal Palace near Siriraj.

    I've just extended my October trip and will be in Pattaya, might be tempted to have a BKK side trip.
