This week is the 233rd anniversary of the Rattanakosin era. This marks the time when King Rama I moved the capital across the river from Thonburi to Bangkok. The anniversary celebration is taking place on Sanam Luang until 21 April 2015. The following are the photos I tweeted live during the opening ceremony.
