More important events in the Thailand calendar 2011:
5 December 2011: to commemorate the auspisicous occasion of His Majesty the King’s 7th cycle birthday anniversary a whole raft of celebrations are planned. If you’ve never witnessed a Royal Barge Procession on the Chao Phraya River, make sure you attend this timeless spectacle. Is there a grander pageant on this planet? None that I've seen so far.
9 November 2011 – 15 February 2012: Royal Flora Ratchaphruek 2011. Also part of His Majesty’s celebrations, this annual flower show is held in the Chiang Mai winter, a beautiful time to visit the north. 30 countries set up colourful and charming displays over 80 hectares … so make sure you take time to stop and smell the roses -- after all, orchids have no smell, jing jing.
Of course there are hundreds of other Amazing Thailand festivals and events you can catch year round, too.
