Volunteers have spruced up the Yaowarat area in Bangkok's Chinatown to welcome His Majesty King Rama X and Her Majesty Queen Suthida, who are scheduled to preside over a royal exhibition titled “Under the Graciousness of Chakri Dynasty” on December 6.

Their majesties will also meet Thai-Chinese people in the area.

The historical landmarks that underwent cleaning included Wat Leng Noei Yi, Wat Traimit Witthayaram, Odeon Circle, Kuan Yim Shrine at Thian Fa Foundation, the community at the Mor Mee intersection and 22 shrines in the China Town area.

Volunteers began the cleaning-up activity on November 29 and will conclude them on Thursday (December 5). They will remain in the area to provide help and welcome the King and Queen from December 6 to 8. A Big Cleaning Day activity has been planned for December 9 after the exhibition ends.

The royal exhibition will feature the royal biographies and duties of Chakri dynasty kings through virtual projection on an LED tunnel display, a parade showing Thai-Chinese art and culture, and Yaowarat Street Food, which will bring together 200 well-known food stores in Chinatown and nationwide.

In addition, members of Thai-Chinese organisations will join as volunteers in the area throughout the exhibition, which will take place from December 6 to 8 this year, covering the area from Odeon Circle to the Chalerm Buri intersection. Some 100,000 people are expected to visit the exhibition.
