Ko Lae Boat Races

Public boat races take place regularly here, and this month it’s the turn of the Deep South’s Narathiwat province. Held since 1975, this one is unique for its ko-lae, traditional, brightly motifed fishing vessels used by the South’s Malay communities, and takes place at the mouth of the Bang Nara River, in front of Narathiwat City Hall. In addition to the main races, which attract teams from around the region, and will apparently be attended by Crown Princess Sirinthorn this year, the event will also include sales of local products and a traditional bird cooing contest. The dates may change slightly, say the TAT, so call their English-speaking hotline on 1672 to confirm. 20 – 25 Sep
