Buri Ram Traditional Boat Races
This annual regatta is staged on the Mun River in Buri Ram's Satuek district. Celebrations include processions and cultural performances featuring elephants. Visitors have the opportunity of visiting the nearby Phanom Rung Historical Park.


Bang Sai Loi Krathong(Festival of Light)
Celebrations include traditional float (Krathong) and beauty contests, handicrafts demonstrations and exhibitions, special events, and krathong-launching beneath the full moon.


Phimai Boat Races
These popular races take place on the Mun River near the old Khmer city of Phimai, a fascinating archaeological site that can be visited at the same time. Besides the regatta there are competitions of boats decorated to resemble the famous Royal Barges, entertainments, and stalls selling local produce.


Surin Elephant Round-up Show
Internationally famous, this annual event brings crowds of visitors to the provincial city of Surin, where over 100 trained elephants are assembled. Among the spectacular features are wild elephant hunts, tugs of war, demonstrations of log pulling skills, and a parade of elephants outfitted for medieval warfare.


International Jazz Festival
A tribute to a master musician and composer, H.M. the King, the event will feature internationally known leading jazz musicians performing in both Bangkok and Pattaya.


Yi Peng Loi Krathong
In Chiang Mai, an unusual part of the Loi Krathong celebration is the Yi Peng Festival or the ritual of the lighted balloon. After a day of merit-making, the people launch colorful hot air paper balloons into the sky, bearing their troubles away. In the evening, all homes and shops are decorated with beautiful lanterns. Later, traditional Krathongs are also floated on the river and other waterways.


Loi Krathong and Candle Festival
According to tradition, Loi Krathong originated in Sukhothai, the first Thai capital, and so it is appropriate to hold this memorable festival in the atmospheric ruins of the ancient city. Highlights include displays of lighted candles and fireworks, folk dancing, and a spectacular light and sound presentation.


River Kwai Bridge Week
Celebrated in the movie of the same name, the bridge on the River Kwai is the setting for this week-long series of events in province that also has other interesting attractions. Highlights include a light and sound presentation at the bridge, archaeological and historical exhibitions, and rides on vintage trains.


Silk Fair
Everybody has heard of Thailand's lustrous silks, and Khon Kaen is one of the major centres of production. Many shops will be offering the beautiful fabric at this fair, which is combined with the traditional Phuk Sieo (friendship-making) ritual. Festival processions and cultural shows add to the atmosphere.


Monkey Buffet Festival
Lopburi is one of the provinces of the central region and home to several prominent artefacts and pre-historic monuments. Major architectural landmarks located within the provincial city area include the shrine of Lord Shiva or Prang Khaek, Narai Ratchaniwet Palace, San Phra Kan, Phra Prang Sam Yot and Wat Phra Si Mahathat. Another significant symbol of Lop Buri city are the monkeys. To its residents, the primates are descendants of Hanuman who, according to the epic Ramayana made Lop Buri his kingdom. These mischievous monkeys have taken over many attractions, especially San Phra Kan and Phra Prang Sam Yot.
