Illuminated Boat Procession Nakhon Phanom

The illuminated boat procession or Lai Ruea Fai in thai is a tradition of the Northeastern people existing for centuries. It marks the end of Buddhist Lent. Legend said that the Lord Buddha spent the entire Buddhist Lent period in Heaven and returned to Earth at the end. To pay respect to Him, boats were decorated with flowers, incense sticks, candles, and lanterns and launched on the Mekong River in the evening. Originally, the boats were made of bamboo or banana tree trunks and decorated. nowadays, with competitions to find the most beautiful illuminated boat, the boats are a lot more impressive.
