Is this worth going to see? We hadn't planned on going to NE Thailand during our 3 weeks, so was wondering if this is worth the journey. And if so, what would be the best way to get there. Would accommodation be more difficult to find because of the festival?

It is absolutely worth going to see -- it is totally and utterly mental! I've been to it three times and it only gets madder each time.
Accommodation gets busy, but there's a few largish hotels there now that accept reservations in advance, so if you're concerned you could do that.

Excellent, can't wait.
As far as I can gather, this year the festival is between 9th-11th May. Am I correct, would hate to get there too late!
Would it be best to get the bus from Bangkok, or maybe the train to Ubon Ratchathani and bus from there?
