Ok after you see this article’s name you might think if there is such thing. And yeah Thailand never lacks of surprises. Some of you might probably have seen it before on CNN or BBC. It is a really must see event.
The event occurs on October 13 in Chonburi Province, Thailand. Who would have thought that buffalos are built to race too, not just to work in the field? Thai farmers have managed to tweak a turn of speed from these working animals that is nothing short of amazing.
The races are taken very seriously by the owners of the buffaloes. It looks like horse racing combining with buffaloes running in Spain. Admittedly, mites slower than a race horse, but the buffaloes are no slouches when it comes to making a short dash for glory.
Although the most fun of the event is the racing, there are some more activities you can do or join like food stalls, handicrafts and a beauty contest. Winning the contest and becoming a Miss Buffalo might not sound so pleasant to you, however there are a lot of girls who are willing to join the contest and be in the limelight of the catwalk. The children can have fun by riding on a buffalo back.
So in case you have a chance to visit Thailand this month, don’t forget to stop by Chonburi Province on the 13 to experience the incredibly fun event. I can guarantee you that this is a well worth seeing!

If you visit Thailand and you didn’t go to Ayutthaya, that means you have not been to Thailand yet. That’s because the province is one of Thailand’s historical and majestic highlights. Ayutthaya was Thailand’s capital city for 417 years from 1350 to 1767. During that time, Ayutthaya was one of the biggest city in Southeast Asia and it was claimed by the visitors to be the most memorable and splendid city at that time.
Back then the Kingdom was extended far beyond the present-day Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar. It had diplomatic relations with Louis XIV and was courted by Portuguese, English, Dutch, Chinese and Japanese merchants.
Ayutthaya is situated only about 90 kilometers from Bangkok or about an hour ride. You cannot miss Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya Historical Park, the extensive historical site in the city. It has been one of UNESCO’s World Heritage since 1991.
What you can see in Ayutthaya is a bunch of ruins architecture and rows of headless Buddha images. You will see the mixture of art from surrounding countries. You might see the same architectures that are similar in some parts throughout Southeast Asia, for example, in Cambodia.
The city is definitely worth visiting. There are lots of activities you and your family can enjoy doing in the city such as boat trips, Bangkok-Ayutthaya River Cruise, Cycle Tours in the Ancient City of Ayutthaya, Elephant riding, etc.
It you have time, I really recommend you to try the River King Cruise or Bangkok-Ayutthaya River Cruise. It will be one of the great experiences that you will never forget. On the way, you will witness the sensational view of the Chaopraya River including the beautiful temples, Grand Palace, bridges, Summer Palace and many more along the way from Bangkok to Ayutthaya with International Buffet Lunch and Coffee Break.
You can look for the cruise in your hotel information in Bangkok or visit the website at www.riverkingcruise.net. Hope you will enjoy!
Only 4-5 hours to the North from Bangkok, Phitsanulok divide Thailand’s Central and Northern regions. It is a great stopover place once you’re travelling to the North and it also has its own tourist attractions that everyone would love to visit.
Also known as Song Kwae City (Song means two and Kwae means river), the city has two important rivers run through. The place is full of natural treasures like mountains, rivers or even waterfalls that make this place more worthwhile.
Apart from the natural attractions like national parks, Phitsanulok is also very well known of its noble history and culture from historical evidences like stones, ancient tools, old temples etc. It is the birthplace of King Narasuan the Great, the legendary King who declared Ayutthaya independence from Myanmar in 1584. You can check out the greatest movies made about him in Asian movies section.
What else can you do in Phitsanulok apart from visiting all those places in the city? I recommend you try trekking. The province is very popular for camping and trekking destination because it consists of several national parks that feature different landscape and flora and fauna. This will definitely impress all the nature lovers just like you. And if you’re interested, you might need to hurry because this is the best time to see all the wildflowers blooming in many beautiful colors in Thung Salaeng Loung National Park.
You can also try rafting. You don’t get to try this a lot elsewhere you know that. It’s getting to raining season in Thailand and the water is getting swifter. This will be a very big challenge for the newbie.
