Buffalo racing may be slower than horse racing, but the buffaloes are no slouches when it comes to making a short dash for glory.
Although this day of fun and competition would succeed with just buffaloes as the celebrities, there are other activities to make it a worthwhile outing for families.
A fair with food stalls and handicrafts appeals to visitors loving authentic Thai food, snacks and sweets. There are rides for children, folk music concerts and a beauty contest of which the prize is the honour of being declared ‘Miss Buffalo’.
It is a festival that provides photo opportunities and is always the conclusion of those who make the effort to travel to Chonburi.
