The festival, the second of its kind, will be held under the theme "The River of Rattanakosin” in a delightful retro atmosphere. It is intended to bring happiness and fun to the people and reflect the magnificence of Thai arts, culture, and traditions.
There will be exhibitions to provide visitors with the opportunity to learn more about Thai history and the value of the waterways of Rattanakosin. Visitors will experience river-based culture amidst numerous species of plants and fantastic artistic creations, such as the model of AisawanThipphaya-at Pavilion, the Thai-style pavilion in the middle of a lake at Bang Pa-In and royal barges.
They will also have the opportunity to visit Royal Family shops, taste delicious food from both floating and non-floating markets, and view a variety of cultural performances.
Visitors are encouraged to dress in traditional Thai costumes worn during the reign of King Rama V, or other forms of traditional costumes made of Thai fabrics from various regions of the country, which reflect the Thai way of life through clothing.
