Don Chedi Memorial Fair (17 Jan - 3 Feb)

In the late 16th century, King Naresuan the Great, a ruler of Ayutthaya, won a historic battle against his enemies largely due to his ability to deploy his elephants in battle. This led to freedom of occupation from the Burmese, who were so brutal in their warfare that many Thais, even today, bear a grudge against them. The fair celebrates the event with historical exhibitions and local entertainment. Suphanburi is a two-hour drive north of Bangkok, and the home of former Thai Prime Minister Banharn Silpa-archa.
