Phuket Vegetarian Festival Procession Routes

Legacy Phuket Gazette

Published

 on 

PHUKET: Following inaugural ceremonies in Phuket over the weekend to summon Chinese ancestral gods to take part in the island’s Vegetarian Festival, Phuket City’s Chinese temples are buzzing with activity and shrouded in the smoke from thousands of firecrackers and incense lit throughout the day.

Now that those gods have taken up temporary residence on Phuket in the bodies of believers (possessed warriors called ma song), the ma song will be taking part in piercing rituals and street daily processions and ceremonies until October 26.

For those who wish to witness the ma song processions, or avoid the roads closed off for them, see the schedule below for times and locations.
