Hua Hin Regatta

Dragon Boat Racing

In November each year at Pranburi, which is some 30km south of Hua Hin, there is dragon boat racing. Teams compete against each other over a 1km long stretch of the Pranburi River and it's really great fun to watch.

The competition is taken seriously and teams will practice regularly for months in advance.
