The humble buffalo provides great entertainment
Every August in Pattaya the highly popular ‘Buffalo Race’ happens. The buffalo (‘Kwai’ – Thai word) holds a special place in Thai hearts due to being the back bone to many a farm across this country.
With mud, water and seriously high speeds, the annual buffalo race attracts high numbers of both Thais and foreigners. The event is held in East Pattaya on Soi Siam Country Club next to Maprachan lake.
*UPDATE NEWS FLASH* Date has been confirmed 18th Aug 2013. Have a look at this short video for the fun of last year. Inspire advises footwear for muddy type fields and hat/shade in case of strong sun. Only limited seating & shaded area so folding chair is a good idea. (can be up to 30mins between races)
