Thailand

 

 

The Reua Sukrihp Khrong Meuang escort barge 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. It accompanies the Reua Phra Thihnang Ananta Nagaraat, which is here partly seen in the background, at its starboard. In the far back, its starboard counterpart can be seen, i.e. a barge named Reua Phali Rang Thawihp, as well as a black reua dang shield boat (fig.), of which there are a total of 22 vessels, that sail on the anterior outer edges of the procession.
