Thousands of travellers flock to Thailand every year, whether it for rest and relaxation, partying like a wild child, or exploring the country natural beauty. From the bustling cityscape of Bangkok to the temple paradise of Chiang Mai, Thailand mainland has plenty of treasures to offer.
Phuket has long been established as Thailand’s finest tropical island paradise. The Pearl of the Andaman Sea, as Phuket is known, boasts an international airport that connects it, not only to Bangkok, but also to many other national and international destinations. This makes Phuket very accessible to both local and international tourists.
Deafening fireworks, raucous drums, colorful flags, floats and flowers, the pungent smell of Chinese herbs, not a stitch of meat in sight, and a procession of trance-induced young men and women, bodies and faces punctured by objects as diverse and bizarre as swords, mechanical tools or plant life. . . welcome to Phuket’s Vegetarian Festival!
