My uncle has a passion for Boun Suang Heua (Boat Racing Festival). He would travel around the country whenever he could to attend Boat Racing Festival in various provinces of Laos. With work and family he can’t attend all of the races but would make sure he could go to Ban Ling San Boat Racing Festival and Vientiane Boat Racing Festival. This year he was able to convince his wife and all of his children to go with him. It was a family day out for food and fun at Ban Ling San Boat Racing Festival.
There has been major improvements to this village with paved road and well organized event. People from near by towns would gather along the river to watch and cheer their favorite teams.
There are plenty of games and carnival rides to keep the children busy. The adults can do some shopping and buy all sorts of things from the festival vendors. When they get hungry, there are plenty of food stands selling Tam Mak Hoong, Ping Kai, Khao Larm, and other dishes and snacks to keep the festival goers happy.
