Don your best jacket or colorful dress and head to the banks of the Chao Phraya for the first annual King's Cup Elephant Boat Race and River Festival. To celebrate Thailand's mighty national animal, the three-day charitable event will feature elephant boat race competitions between 12 teams including international teams from China and the Philippines who will go trunk to trunk with Thailand's Navy Seals. On land, entertainment is aplenty too between champagne tents, beer gardens, food stations and concerts by Thai singers like Atom and J Jetrin.

Ticket sales will be donated to elephant related projects throughout Thailand.
