    2011-09-06

    Thailand has an exotic allure than many travelers have enjoyed experiencing while on their Asian getaways. During the month of October, visitors to this nation may witness a special Thai event that occurs only once a year at the Naga Fireballs celebration, Frommer's reports.

    This incredible spectacle is unique to the region surrounding the Mekong River in Nong Khai. The natural phenomenon sends gaseous balls of light into the air only during this month on the full moon. Some locals believe it's an honor to Buddha by Naga, the serpent, but scientists say it may have something to do with gravity and decomposition.

    Travelers are welcome to observe this wonder along the banks of the river and participate in the two-day celebrations surrounding the occurrence, including an illuminated boat competition and theatrical performances.

    While traveling through Thailand, visitors can experience some other beautiful attractions that are plentiful throughout the nation. According to Lonely Planet, guests can journey to the nearby capital of Vientiane and see the That Dam, which is a massive Buddhist landmark that was rumored to once be covered in gold.
