    Thailand's Coronation Day


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Arevaaamy was invited to take pictures of this distinguished event that took place on May 5. She says that it has been officially celebrated since 1950. The Coronation Day, or as it is known in Thai, "Wan Chatramongkhol", is a 'time of celebration and remembrance of our King's contribution to his people and country. It is about also about our identity as his people. The people pay respects, every year, at the heart of the capital city.'
