Traditional long-tailed boats are racing to the Wat Ban Tham Temple for over 50 years. The old tradition started a long time ago, when people offered beautiful gifts to Monks at temples on the riverside, consequently boat races were being held in which the winner would receive the gifts. Nowadays the race is successfully organized by the locals, many people participate in the race with big boats, up to 55 oarsmen on days when the river is at its highest.
