Has the date of the coronation being confirmed? What sort of impact (if any) will it have on visitors?

So far no specific date has been set, but news reports say the coronation will take place at some point before the end of the year. I am guessing some time in December, to allow appropriate time to pass following the Royal Cremation.

As for an impact on visitors, I am also guessing it depends on where you intend to visit. Certainly there will be an impact on Bangkok since a Royal Coronation obviously is a major event. As for the rest of the country, we just don't know yet.

Again, just a guess on my part, the bars probably will be asked to close on the coronation date. If they are allowed to open, I am guessing no alcohol will be allowed to be served.
