Wat Ratburana is home to a wooden boat used by King Rama V on a visit to Phitsanulok. Local folklore claims that anyone who makes offerings at the boat then crawls beneath it 3 or more times will be granted a wish.
|Even the monkeys and ellys look up to him|
Final stop on my itinerary: the wonderfully-named Sergeant Major Thawee Folk Museum. Spread over several traditional wooden buildings, the displays cover farm implements, costumes, kitchenwares, and much more, including the traditional way to castrate a bull in Thailand (which basically involves beating the testicles until they fall off - ouch!).
