One of the most colourful royal events in Thailand is the annual Trooping of the Colours. This marks the birthday of HM The King. About 2,000 troops march down Ratchadamnoen Avenue to the Royal Plaza where they pledge allegiance to His Majesty. Yesterday they held a rehearsal with the next one on Thursday 22 November. However, the full dress rehearsals should be of more interest. At the moment two are slated for Sunday 25 November and Sunday 2 December. If I hear about any changes I will tweet from @RichardBarrow.
UPDATE: Last Sunday’s dress rehearsal was cancelled due to the political rally. I have just heard that the rehearsals are now scheduled for 29th November and 2nd December from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. I have never been before and so I don’t know what kind of restrictions there might be. As always, dates and times are subject to change without notice. I cannot get to the Thursday one but I plan to be there on Sunday.
