Experience the glory of ancient Ayutthaya in this 10-day fair

The Glorious of Ayutthaya Fair 2017 is being organized from 15 to 24 December to celebrate the historical significance of the ancient Thai capital since the Ayutthaya Historical Park was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1991.

This year, local and international tourists are encouraged to help preserve Thai culture by wearing traditional Thai outfits to join the event, which begins with a grand opening procession on 15 December, from 15.00 hrs.

Highlights of the 10-day event include a light-and-sound presentation at Wat Maha That that tells the story of the great kings and queens as well as the heroes and heroines of the former Siam. Scheduled every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, there is one show on 15 December at 18.00 hrs. and two shows every evening on 16, 17, 22, 23 and 24 December at 18.00 and 20.00 hrs. The ticket price is 500 Baht with audio translation and 200 Baht for a regular seat.

To add to the memorable experience, there will be a True cinematic movie series Si Suriyothai and stage performances.

On the fun side, the event will also feature a ‘retro’ Ayutthaya-era market fair, a ‘noodle and prawn street’ selling dishes that contain noodles and prawns, a pedestrian shopping street, a cultural plaza displaying folk performances found in Ayutthaya, a motor show fair, and a Thai Red Cross fair.  Several beauty pageants, talent competitions, singing contests and other challenges will add to the colour of the fair.
