Buffalo Racing Festival

About
Thailand is an agricultural country of which in the old days, local farmers depended a lot on buffalos to help them in the field paddies. Hence, Thailand has a festival dedicated to giving special attention and praise to this hard-working animal. Apart from the buffalo dash which is one of the main activities, there are usually a buffalo contest for a winning breed, a farmer beauty pageant and other interesting activities focusing on the agricultural industry of Thailand. This event is most famous in Chonburi province, which is where Pattaya is located, 2 hours from Bangkok.

A great event plagued by noise

This is truly a unique event that has been happening for over a hundred years. Unfortunately like all event in Thailand the amplified speaker system and dismissal of peoples comfort makes it unbearable in a short amount of time.

Watching the bare back riders race these wonderful animals is an experience of a lifetime! Do your research - and if you are in the area on the day of the races, book yourself a driver and go!! The parade, festival, friendliness of everyone there was incredible. We don't speak Thai - but had no problems navigating and figuring out where we should be and when! It was incredible!
