Important bridges in Bangkok decorated with lights in honor of His Majesty the King
important bridges in Bangkok are decorated with lights at night in honor of His Majesty the King on the occasion of his coronation.
Bhumibol Bridge, which is considered one of the most beautiful bridges over the Chao Phraya River connecting Bangkok to Samut Prakan, has been beautifully decorated with lights by both government and private agencies. Shared admiration is uniting the people enjoying the beautiful sight of the bridge ablaze with lights. “Bhumibol Bridge” was constructed on the royal initiative of His Majesty the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej to solve traffic problems and facilitate people’s travels in and out of the capital.
The Expressway Authority of Thailand and the Ministry of Transport has decorated Rama 9 Bridge to express loyalty and gratitude to His Majesty the King. The highlight is the top of the cable post of Rama 9 Bridge on the Phra Nakhon side where the Buddha relic is enshrined.
Lights are being used to decorate many bridges over the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok and its vicinity. They include Rama 3 Bridge, Rama 4 Bridge, Rama 5 Bridge, Rama 7 Bridge, Mahajessadabodin tharanusorn Bridge, Somdet Phra Pinklao Bridge, Phra Buddha Yod Fa Bridge, Phra Pokklao Bridge, Krung Thon Bridge, and Bangkok Bridge.
The decorative lighting of the bridges will continue today and Monday, May 6, 2019, from 6 p.m. until midnight
