A Whole Lot of Elephants
The city of Surin near the border with Cambodia is famous chiefly for its annual elephant round up. The festival lasts for a whole 11 days, but the biggest crowds come on the last weekend for the main event, which features 300 elephants taking part in a number of activities including battle reenactments and other spectacles.
