Final Dress Rehearsal for Royal Barge Procession

Nov. 6, 2012 - Bangkok, Thailand - The ornamental prow of the Royal Barge Suphannahong on the Chao Phraya River in the dress rehearsal for the Royal Barge Procession.

The Royal Barge Procession consists of 52 barges: 51 historical Barges, and the Royal Barge, the Narai Song Suban, which King Rama IX built in 1994.
