  Ekachai Escort Barges

 

Thailand

 

 

The Reua Ekachai Laaw Thong and Reua Ekachai Heun Haaw (fig.) escort barges on the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok, during the Royal Barge Procession of 12 June 2006, which was held to commemorate the 60th anniversary on the throne of King Bhumipon Adunyadet. They accompany the King's personal Royal Barge Reua Phra Thihnang Suphanahong (fig.), which is in the center ahead of them, but out of sight in this picture. They are followed by Reua Phra Thihnang Narai Song Suban (fig.), here seen only in part, in the rear and in between Reua Ekachai Laaw Thong, which sails at its port or larboard (here seen in the foreground), and Reua Ekachai Heun Haaw, which sails at its starboard.
