Royal Barges National Museum : Bangkok, Thailand

The Royal Barge Procession is one of the most spectacular events in the world. It is performed occasionally during the Tod Kathin Buddhist Festival when H.M. The King delivers new robes to the monks at Wat Arun. It was also seen by millions of viewers around the world when it was specially staged for the 2003 APEC Conference in Bangkok and broadcast live to the participating countries. These ornately decorated Boats are maintained by the Royal Thai Navy and docked at The Royal Barge National museum on Bangkok Noi Canal on the Thonburi side.
