Hua Hin prides itself for a history steeped in connections with the Thai monarchy, particularly the legacy of the most revered late King, His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej or King Rama IX the Great.
Accordingly, a fitting recognition of his birthday was held at Rajabhakti Park on the evening of 5th December.
This was a resplendent demonstration of the royal culture of the region, with traditional costume, dance and music on show; a culture of which occasional visitors and tourists see very little.
There are few such events for visitors to experience and this event was held with little fanfare or promotion. Many locals, especially the ex-pat population, had no idea this was being held.
With a magnificent backdrop of the towering statues of seven other Great Kings of Thailand, there is an obvious opportunity to make this occasion an annual hallmark event; an extravagant sound and light spectacle worthy of national or even international recognition.
What do you think, could ‘Hua Hin, Our Father’s House’ be promoted to become another reason to visit Hua Hin to really experience the amazing Royal Culture of the region?
