Phuket Vegetarian Festival

Nine Days Of Diet And Prayer

The Phuket Vegetarian Festival, or Te Sa Gan Gin Je, takes place over a nine-day period each October. Participants adhere to a strict vegetarian diet: red and yellow flags signal that a shop or restaurant offers food in line with festival customs. However, some of the dishes look and task like real meat, though made from soy cake. The highlight of the festival is a procession through town where participants display seemingly inhuman acts of strength and resistance to pain: proof of their devotion to the Nine Emperor Gods.
