Honouring the Chinese god Iew Keng, devotees and Mah Song spirit mediums led the caravan from Mission Hospital Phuket into the heart of Phuket Town, where it proceeded to Saphan Hin before returning to their respective shrines, both located just north of Phuket Town.

Devotees, dressed in white, lined the streets to witness the procession pass by despite some heavy downpours in the morning hours.
