Nakhon Phanom is located 730 km north east of Bangkok. The town holds, every year on the first half of October, a colorful naval review – Loi Reua Fai. At night, the magnificent view of the illuminated boat procession appears within the full darkness of the river’s water.
The boats are decorated in various shapes of lights with Buddhism motives.
In addition to the boat procession, street parades, various shows, food fair and traditional boats race are held.
