Laguna Phuket

The Phuket Vegetarian Festival is an annual event held during the ninth lunar month of the Chinese calendar. Every year, Laguna Phuket donated to local shrines and set up an offering shelter to worship Ma-Song, devotees through whom the gods are said to enter during the annual Phuket Vegetarian Festival. It is believed that the vegetarian festival and its accompanying sacred rituals bestow good fortune upon those who religiously observe this rite. During this time, local residents of Chinese ancestry strictly observe a 9-day vegetarian or vegan diet for the purpose of spiritual purity and merit-making.
