AYUTTHAYA: The Ayutthaya World Heritage Fair 2019, scheduled for March 13-22, has been postponed indefinitely due to the coronavirus threat.
The fair is usually held in the middle of December every year. Because of budgetary constraints, the Ayutthaya World Heritage Fair 2019 was put off until March 13-22.
Because of the Covid-19 threat, an urgent meeting of the organising committee, chaired by provincial governor Panu Yaemsri, was held yesterday.
The meeting decided to postpone the fair again for an indefinite period.
The Ayutthaya World Heritage Fair has been held for nearly 30 consecutive years, usually in the middle of December. In addition to the world heritage sites it features light and sound presentations and always draws a large number of Thai and foreign tourists.
