King Maha Vajiralongkorn’s Coronation Day To Come!

With the passing of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol Adulyadej and the coronation for the new King Maha Varjiralongkorn yet to be set. It seems likely that his coronation could take place soon after Kings Bhmibol’s cremation and just before Loi Krathong. Otherwise, I’d guess that it wouldn’t take place until sometime in early 2018. What I feel safe in saying, is that there will be no Coronation Day for 2017.

This is all pure speculation on my part. So let’s wait and see!
