The Ayutthaya provincial administration is urging tourists to enjoy the annual “Ayutthaya Gold Night Light Festival”, which is taking place in the ancient city this week.



Ayutthaya governor Sujin Chaiyachumsak says the festival, launched on August 3, will continue until Thursday night.

The provincial administration is lighting up important historical sites, temples and walkways in the middle of Ayutthaya Historical Park and the governor says it provides a nightly treat for those staying nearby.

Extra stalls are also open to sell local handmade goods at Krungsri Market near the old provincial hall, while free trams are available to provide shuttle services throughout the festival, the governor said.
