Ko Samui is in the south of Thailand. That place has many traditions such as full moon party and interesting tradition is buffalo fighting. Buffalo fighting is the original tradition of Ko Samui.
First, buffalo fighting promotes traveling to Ko Samui. Tourists come here for looking it because it is funny and exciting. This tradition attract to tourist. So, the farmerís increase income from selling ticket. Food seller and fruit seller get income increase too.

I think buffalo fighting is not good thing because it may be betting and itís a cruel activity and the buffalo will be hurt. I think buffalo fighting is not suitable to promote traveling in Ko Samui.

In conclusion, buffalo fighting is tradition of Ko Samui.
But itís not moral because the buffalo will get hurt and die eventually. In addition, it becomes betting. What do you think about this tradition?Thanks for your comment.:eek:

I think the farmer should not use the buffalo in this tradition. They should keep them in the farm.

This festival features head-wrestling bouts in which two male water buffaloes are pitted against one another. Unlike Spanish Bullfighting, wherein bulls get killed while fighting sword-wielding men, Buffalo Fighting Festival, Ko Samui is a fairly harmless contest. The fighting season varies according to some ancient customs and ceremonies.

Any type of fighting is not good thing to do for promoting businesses. But for providing entertainment it is good at some specific levels. Every one has the right to live. Buffalo fight is an interesting tradition but it should be made sure that buffaloes will not die in these fights.

Natives of Koh Samui like to get pleasure from buffalo fighting shows, and indeed, it's believed to be the most effective and favorite recreation activity among residents. I watched some video of this fight.
