Wat Chalong Fair kicks off on February 4

Phuket’s biggest annual temple fair, held at Wat Chalong, will kick off on February 4 to offer one week of local fun, stalls, food and entertainment.

Each year the Fair attracts thousands of visitors who come to sample the wide range of food, browse the market stalls and enjoy the variety of activities on offer. There will also be traditional nang talung shadow puppet performances and renditions of the Manorah play, indigenous culture from the southern region.

Besides the many famous singers and local celebrities taking turns on stage, the fair also gives people the opportunity to pay respects before an image of revered monk Luangpor Chaem and pray for good fortune.

The fair runs for seven days starting on February 4.
