Royal Barge Procession

une 9: View full dress rehearsal from TTS President Dr. Ging's riverside residence
June 12: View actual Royal Barge Procession from historical Chakrabongse House

In celebration of the 60th anniversary of His Majesty’s accession to the throne, the Thai Textile Society is pleased to announce two member-only events offering opportunities to view the Grand Royal Barge Procession in June.

As honored members of the Thai Textile Society, you are receiving notice of these events. It is one way the Society would like to thank you for your support.

As you may know, tickets to view the Grand Royal Barge Procession in June are highly sought after. For example, lawn seating at the Bank of Thailand costs B1,000 per person (1,200 tickets) while a spot on board the Riverside III cruise ship at the Royal Thai Navy Institute (840 tickets) costs B3,000 per person. At both of these locations, you will be dealing with crowds.

Through our board members, the Thai Textile Society has secured opportunities for more private venues to view the Royal Barge Procession.
