The traditional festival honours the Nine Emperor Gods and commences annually on the ninth lunar month of the Chinese calendar across many Asian nations. Through many vivid and memorable displays, the Phuket Vegetarian Festival and the sacred rituals performed throughout the nine days are believed to bring good luck to those who ardently believe in their power.

For those devoted to this ancient and fascinating practice, the nine days is a time for observing a strict vegetarian or vegan diet to cleanse their spirit and make merit with the nine emperor gods. Most of the rituals featured in the Vegetarian Festival are performed at Chinese shrines across the island.

Amidst peaceful days and cultural festivals alike, Banyan Tree Phuket provides its guests with an unparalleled combination of luxurious comfort and privacy.
