October - Amazing Festivals along the Mekong River Bank Naga Fireball Phenomenon
Amphoe Phon Phisai, Nong Khai Province and Nearby Districts
At the end of October people from all around Thailand visit river near Phon Phisai to witness a true phenomenon - the Naga Fireballs. Totally unexplained, great balls of fire rise up through the water and shoot into the air time and time again. A very eerie spectacle, there has been some debate amongst cynics that the whole thing is staged by the Tourism Authority of Thailand! Hardly likely - witness the spectacle for yourself.
