Ayutthaya Week Festival big historical festival

Ayutthaya, former capital of the Kingdom of Siam, 1h30 drive from Bangkok organizes from 22 to 26 May 2019 a big historical festival about its history and its kings. Here are more details on this event which should add another dimension to the visit of this very interesting city that I always enjoy visiting.

Apparently, there will still be events on May 27th and 28th from 6pm to 9pm.

And if you continue your route to Lopburi, further in the North, the city also organizes a festival from 21 to 24 May.

I also take the opportunity to remind you that you can find in the main part of the website dates and information on many other festivals in Thailand.
