When you notice a lot of yellow flags with the red Chinese script flying in Phuket Town, you’ll know that the Phuket Vegetarian Festival will start soon. In 2018, the festival is celebrated from 9-17 Oct. Devotees dress in white and stick to a strictly vegetarian diet throughout the festival – an event that has been celebrated yearly for more than 100 years. So book your flight and plan a visit to the festival now. Visit Phuket, make merit, cleanse your body and soul. Phuket E Magazine recommends five hotels located in the town’s prime area with easy access to the festival.
