Bangkok--31 Aug--AMARI PHUKET
The biggest festival in Phuket is the annual Vegetarian Festival, which will be held from 1 to 9 October 2016.

The Vegetarian Festival is a nine-day, nine-night celebration which Phuketians eat only vegetarian food with the belief that they will be ridding themselves of harm and bringing back good luck for themselves and their families. There will be many activities throughout the festival period. For example, witness parades from all shrines in Phuket heading towards the Jui Tui – the main shrine in Phuket town. The religious procession includes some worshippers who act as mediums of gods and puncture their cheeks to get rid of any harm that could happen in the future. Other interesting activities include fire-walking and blade-walking (devout worshippers walking across stepladders made of sharp iron blades).

Amari Phuket proudly invites guests to enjoy the festival with a Hot Deal package starting at 17,700 THB+++ for a four-night stay. Other add-on benefits include a complimentary round-trip airport transfer, special vegetarian dishes corner available at the daily buffet breakfast in line with the festival, 20% discount on food and beverage throughout period of stay, and unlimited Wi-Fi internet access in room. Moreover, guests who book a Hot Deal package and stay from 1 to 9 October 2016 will receive a special Vegetarian Festival souvenir to be used whilst watching the ceremonial parade in Phuket town.
