All of Thailand celebrates & there are processions, activities & huge tributes across the Kingdom on this national holiday.

The King was born on a Monday, which is signified by the colour yellow; therefore most of the population dresses in yellow & roads are decorated in huge yellow ribbons to celebrate.
