Once a year the city of Yasothon is put on the map for its famous rocket festival. Once the bamboo rockets were made by monks. Now there is a competition in the area for the best and strongest rockets. This event is going on in the countryside as well. The point is to get generous amounts of water for the rice season.
Every year there is a spectacular festival in Isaan with people turning themselves into ghosts. The ghost festival is a highlight in the vicinity of Dan Sai in Loei province. If you are in Thailand during the rainy season. Don’t miss this festival.
