Nine Emperor Gods Festival, is an annual commemoration inviting ancient Chinese spirits to come down from the heavens to witness nearly 8 days of rituals and parades. But officials worry this year’s festivities may not receive their usual attendance or people will be attending for shorter periods and avoiding the crowds. Bottomline, less money […]

Many places closed for months.. because of covid. Let's do a festival.. but you may not celebrate your birthday with a your friends ( what they call a crowd)... let me guess this is allowed, because thailand benefit from it financially... they think..

Considering all the restriction we have in place, now all of a sudden it's ok to have a festival that usually draws big crowds, I'll be staying well away from Phuket Town

No good for me, being a red wine drinker and meat eater.

I'll  continue to do my bit, and drink the odd case of red or two, and smoke a Romeo & Juliet cigar.

A Chinese inspired festival I believe,  waste of time, no Chinese tourists.

OK for local Thai/Chinese 👍

Instead of having one large festival, it could have been better organised to have smaller groups gathering in each village. Surin, Kamala, Ban Rim Pa, Karon, Hat Yai, Rawai etc. Smaller groups and spaced out.

There is a guy in Rawai that organises something every year on the way to Nai Harn I'll take a look later as I drive bye
