    We were at Phuket in the early October,so we had the added bonus of witnessing Vegetarian festivals along with the marvelous beaches and islands..The festival spans 9 days long..the first 9 days of the lunar moon..This is essentially a Taoist festival..Nonetheless, everybody is entitled to participate in the festivities..The entire town is decorated with yellow flags and people dress up in white clothes..Devotees pierce their bodies with metal rods and anything possible..Streets are lined with prayer table smostly in front of big shopping complexes or commercial buildings..The Ban Niao temple hosts the city’s main prayer event..The highlight is the chariot proceeding towards the sea on the last day..All along the way, people join the procession and throw fire crackers at tha chariot riders above them..It is crazy and deafening , so be prepared to carry ear plugs and avoid th efront row for being in the procession…

    We spent our second honeymoon in Phuket and got more than we asked for..It was a dream come true..The landscape is heavenly..the soft white sand,palm trees, azure sea waters, the warm and friendly people …everything was just soo perfect here…It is most important to know that everything in Thailand is inexpensive and negotiable..You can negotiate even your trip at tourist agency or the food that you have there..Phang Nga Bay is unmissable where an old James Bond movie was filmed…

    Have a great holiday!
