Elephants of Surin to join the mourning

The annual elephant round-up show in Surin has been cancelled go make way for an activity to mourn the late King Bhumibol.

Each year Surin puts on the cultural event in the third week of November. The origin of the round-up is thought to be from royal hunts conducted in the province during medieval times. The indigenous people of the region are known to be expert elephant trainers.

This year, though, the Surin Provincial Public Relations have stated that the event will not go ahead. Instead, an event featuring 300 elephants will occur in Surin designed to pay condolences to King Rama IX over a four day period, 16-20 November. Perhaps an even more unique site to behold!
