Boat racing in Nam Khan River

In mid-term of the Buddhist Lent, at the time of the new moon, the biggest boat race takes place in the Nam Khan River, in the center of the town of Luang Prabang. It is a very popular event and many people from the countryside and all over the country take this opportunity to come in to town.

The day before, a large street market will be held from 6 am to 12 am, located on the site of the old stadium, providing products from Thailand for a period of one week.

These holidays, with that of Pimay and the end of Lent Buddhist, are the busiest of the year.
