This October 14, Phukets famous Vegetarian Festival begins and lasts for 9 days. Dating back to 1825, this festival is a true cultural experience. The participants beleive that participating in the events and rituals bestows good fortune upon them. Sacred rituals are perfomed in various shrines (mainly in the Phuket town area – Around 15-20 minutes from Serenity) by the devotees of Thai Chinese origin. The history of the festival originates in the early 1800s when a Chinese Opera came to perform for Thai miners working in Phuket and when the entire group of performers fell sick, they all restrcited themselves to a strict vegetarian diet to honor the Emperor Gods. When their sickness disapeared, the locals began following this ritual once a year to bring good luck to its participants.
Be Warned – the festival is not for everyone to witness, especially not for the faint at heart. The tranced participants, belonging to local shrines, parade the streets while walking on burning coals, piercing their bodies, and other acts of self mortification. Specially prepared Vegan dishes can be found all over Phuket towns food stalls and markets during this event.
For those who want to preview the event, here is a short video. Please dont watch this if your not up to seeing the tranced locals doing their thing.
Coral Island is one of those activities that should be missed. Located 10 minutes away from Serenity via a boat trip that we will be happy to arrange.
The beautiful pristine waters are a perfect place to chill for an entire day. There are two main beaches on the Island, Long Beach and Banana Beach. We recommended that you spend your day on Banana beach which is not overcrowded like Long-Beach.
The water is clear and full of beautifully colorful fish which swim up to you offer them some bread. The beach is prefect for snorkeling, chilling on the beach with a glass of wine, and late afternoon lunch, and grabbing an afternoon snooze under one of the picturesque palm trees.
This beach is great in both low and high seasons and is perfect for all types of visitors.
