A day of the famous Nan Boat Races 2018 in Nan


Yesterday 13 October 2018 it was the 2 years memorial day to honour King Rama 9. And in honour of King Rama 9 there was an procession of old long-boats on the Nan River, just 3 km south of Nan town. Besides the procession there were also boat races. Each race is held between 2 boats and over a distance of 300m. There are about 20 villages representative with their own boat, some of this boats are more as 100 year old. And the boats are called long-boats because they are long and some of them can hold 40 people. Following are more photos I made yesterday.
