There’s no better time to be a vegetarian and be in Phuket than this October, as the island once again plays host to its massive vegetarian festival.

Phuket’s locals and visitors will be able to experience the festivities surrounding the annual Phuket Vegetarian Festival, which will take place this year between October 15 and 23, during which time local residents of Chinese ancestry will be adopting vegetarian or vegan diets in order to cleanse their spirits.

Dating back to 1825, the custom sees participants adhering to strict moral codes by refraining from vice, keeping themselves clean, dressing in white and maintaining a sense of physical and mental restraint.

In addition to this code of abstinence, the festival is marked by street processions near to Chinese shrines and temples, with fireworks and loud drums used to drive away evil spirits.
