Sawasdee Krab,

Thailand has a new king, with the country’s HRH Crown Prince Vajiralongkorn 64, formally taking the throne to succeed his much-revered late father, who reigned for 70 years.

The new monarch, received the title “His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun” He will also be known as Rama X, the tenth king in the Chakri dynasty that was founded in 1782.

“I would like to accept in order to fulfill his majesty’s wishes and for the benefit of all Thais,” HM King Vajiralongkorn said.

Prime Minister Gen. Prayuth Chan-ocha said Thursday night that because of tradition that the throne should not remain vacant, the new king’s reign will be considered as beginning on the day HM King Bhumibol died.

“His majesty the new king, the beloved son of the late king, will carry forward his leadership and legacy,” he said.

Sawasdee Krab,

Chonburi’s new 3.42 kilometre long coast bridge is becoming a new popular tourist spot, and now construction is underway to extend it by additional three kilometres to ease traffic congestion in the town.

President of Chonburi Provincial Administration Organization (PAO) Mr Witthaya Khumpluem disclosed today that the coast bridge which is officially named “Chonlamakvithi 84th Anniversary” is becoming a new tourist attraction among local people and tourists from other provinces.

Apart from being a new route to bypass traffic jams in Chonburi town, he said a large number of tourists came to the rest areas on the coast bridge particularly at weekends to enjoy picnics and experience the surrounding sceneries particularly in the evening.

This prompted the provincial organization to extend the coast bridge by another three kilometres to connect Tambon Samet for traffic and tourism reasons.

He said the coast bridge was built to commence the 84th birthday anniversary of His Majesty the King Bhumibol Adulyadej in 2011.

The bridge was intended to facilitate motorists to travel and avoid traffic jams in Chonburi town, particularly during rush hours and during the festival seasons

The extension part is scheduled to be finished next year, he said.t30-11-16-1-2t30-11-16-1-1

Ayutthaya Part 2

Sawasdee Krab,

Ayutthaya Kingdom

Ayutthaya was a Siamese kingdom that existed from 1351 to 1767. Ayutthaya was friendly towards foreign traders, including the Chinese, Vietnamese (Annamese), Indians, Japanese and Persians, and later the Portuguese, Spanish, Dutch and French, permitting them to set up villages outside the walls of the capital, also called Ayutthaya. In the sixteenth century, it was described by foreign traders as one of the biggest and wealthiest cities in the East. The court of King Narai (1656–88) had strong links with that of King Louis XIV of France, whose ambassadors compared the city in size and wealth to Paris.
By 1550, the kingdom’s vassals included some city-states in the Malay Peninsula, Sukhothai, and parts of Cambodia.
In foreign accounts, Ayutthaya was called Siam, but many sources say the people of Ayutthaya called themselves Tai, and their kingdom Krung Tai, ‘The Tai capital’. The word ‘krung’ has alternative meanings, as does ‘tai’, but in this context Tai capital is appropriate.
Historical overview
Origins

According to the most widely accepted version of its origin, the Siamese state based at Ayutthaya in the valley of the Chao Phraya River rose from the earlier, nearby kingdoms of Lavo (at that time still under the Khmer control) and Suphannaphoom (Suvarnabhumi). One source says that, in the mid-fourteenth century, due to the threat of an epidemic, King U Thong moved his court south into the rich floodplain of the Chao Phraya on an island surrounded by rivers, which was the former seaport city of Ayothaya, or Ayothaya Si Raam Thep Nakhon, the Angelic City of Sri Rama. The new city was known as Ayothaya, or Krung Thep Dvaravadi Si Ayothaya. Later it became widely known as Ayutthaya, the Invincible City. Continue reading

Ancient capital of Thailand.

Ayutthaya (city)

Ayutthaya (full name Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya, also spelled “Ayudhya”) city is the capital of Ayutthaya province in Thailand. Located in the valley of the Chao Phraya River, the city was founded in 1350 by King U Thong, who went there to escape a smallpox outbreak in Lop Buri and proclaimed it the capital of his kingdom, often referred to as the Ayutthaya kingdom or Siam. Ayutthaya became the second Siamese capital after Sukhothai. Its remains, characterized by the prang (reliquary towers) and gigantic monasteries, give an idea of its past splendour. It is estimated that Ayutthaya by the year 1600 CE had a population of about 300,000, with the population perhaps reaching 1,000,000 around 1700 CE, making it one of the world’s largest cities at that time. In 1767, the city was destroyed by the Burmese army, resulting in the collapse of the kingdom. The Ayutthaya historical park is the ruins of the former capital of the Kingdom of Siam. It is the site of sacked and destruction of the Ayutthaya city, its art and buildings by the Burmese in 1767, which is recognized internationally as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city was refounded a few kilometers to the east. The city is sometimes called “Venice of the East”.

Ayutthaya is named after the city of Ayodhya in India, the birthplaceof Rama in the Continue reading
