Rituals – Phuket, Thailand
Written By Admin
Phuket Photo Tours take you on a memorable journey in the heart of one of Phuket’s most famous and fascinating festival: the Vegetarian Festival during which sacred rituals are held to bestow good fortune upon the believers who observe a ten days vegetarian or vegan diet for the purposes of spiritual cleansing.
This festival is mostly known its spectacular and sometimes gruesome ceremonies during which participants acting as mediums of the Gods, known as “Ma Song”, perform acts of self-mutilation such as barefoot walking over fire, cheek piercing with all kind of unimaginable household items, bladed ladder climbing, etc.
Despite the belief that the Gods are preventing the “Ma Song” to experience any pain, these scenes can be quite gruesome but they make incredible photo opportunities and a chance to live a once in the lifetime experience.
Other unique photo opportunities include street processions for all the excitement of the thousands of firecrackers, the yellow festooned streets and the numerous food stalls serving vegetarian food that are certainly worth a try.
