Next to the musical, the market, the carnival and the performances, Long Boat racing is the last part of the Phimai Festival I haven’t reported on. The activities surrounding this competition almost double the total square footage of the Festival and attract hundreds and hundres of enthusiastic spectators. More pictures and videos of the race are available if you continue reading. The large yellow building next to the river (shown in the pictures underneath) is the Amatara Resort. Clean, new and conveniently-located it is ideally suited if you want to stay during the festival.
