BANG FAI PHAYA NAK
The most famous "BANG FAI PHAYA NAK" (บั้งไฟพญานาค) or Naga Fireballs Festival is happening in Nong Khai province, located in Isan region - Northeast of Thailand. The festival happens just at the end of Buddhist Lent. The highlight is the Naga fireballs, which rise up from the river and disappear into the sky.
The Naga fireball festival is divided between Nong Khai and Phon Phisai cities. The Naga fireball festival lasts eight days in Nong Khai.
There is also a music concert on the opposite side on the venue.
Despite being a World Festival, not so many foreigners could be seen. 95% of visitors to the upper northeast are domestic travellers arriving by land or air transport.
