Map of the 85 Replicas of the Royal Crematorium around Thailand

Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to attend the Royal Cremation Ceremony of King Buhmibol on 26th October in Bangkok. As there are many more Thais who would also like to pay their respects, but cannot go to Sanam Luang on that day, replicas of the Royal Crematorium have been built around Thailand. In total, there are 85 replica crematoriums around Thailand where people can go to lay sandalwood flowers (dok mai chan). In the Bangkok vicinity alone, there are eight locations. I am working on the full map at the moment, but in the meantime, please scroll down for the complete list.

    Richard, great info here. Is it Suggested to stay off roads completely on Thursday? Our route is Ban Phe to Samut Prakarn (Bang Phli). Better Thursday night, Friday am or Friday afternoon for travel back that direction?

      They have a big event for the royal cremation in Bang Phli. There will be a massive traffic jam for sure on the 26th October. The following day will be better.
