Coronation of King of Thailand Rama X

The current King of Thailand, Maha Vajiralongkorn, Rama X, if he succeeded his father who died on October 13, 2016, has not yet been crowned. Its coronation will take place from 4th to 6th May. The first day is the most important and will follow a precise ancestral ritual where water will play a primordial symbolic role.

Besides the ceremony which if it is called a coronation in English even if it will be more a blessing with sacred water than an actual coronation, there will be several parades ibn Bangkok. A dedicated webpage was created by the authorities about the event for those who would like to know more about the rites of this event, just have a look here. Note that several roads in Bangkok will be closed on those days and Grand Palace and Emerald Buddha Temple (Wat Phra Kaew) will probably be closed to visitors at least on may 4th.
