Thailand is an agricultural country – in the old days, local farmers were dependent on buffalo to help them in the paddy fields. Hence, Thailand has a festival dedicated to giving special attention and praise to this hard-working animal. Apart from the buffalo dash, which is one of the main activities, there are usually a buffalo contests for a winning breed, a farmer beauty pageant and other interesting activities focusing on the agricultural industry of Thailand. This event is most famous in the Chonburi province, which is where Pattaya is located – 2 hours from Bangkok.
