Up close at the 2014 Phuket Vegetarian Festival, Thailand. เทศกาลกินเจ The Vegetarian Festival is held annually in Phuket, Krabi and many other parts of Southern Thailand. I filmed this when people from one of the Chinese Temples were getting ready for a parade in Krabi Town. Many types of objects are used in these piercings, I've seen people pierced with beach umbrellas, garden tools, flowers, palm leaves, swords and many other things. Seeing this live gives a fascinating insight into Thai culture and traditions, and you'll certainly remember this part of your Thai holidays. I think it's one of the bloody best things to do in Krabi Thailand. The Vegetarian Festival, also known as the Festival of Ngan Kin Jeh, begins every year, in October, on the first day of the ninth lunar month of the Chinese calendar. The event is celebrated by the Chinese-Thai community in many parts of Southern Thailand including Krabi, Songkhla, Trang and Phuket. Despite it's name, vegetarian food is not the central focus for the festival, but the white clothed devotees attending do adhere to a strict vegetarian diet for the 9 days of the event. This practice cleanses the spirit and makes merit. Some participants engage in a number of extraordinary activities such as fire-walking over glowing coals, climbing ladders with rungs made of sharpened blades, piercing different parts of their bodies with various objects, and slicing their tongues with knives and swords. Those participating in the piercings and other activities (mah songs) prepare for the festival by abstaining from meat, alcohol and sex for the previous six days. The mah song say that they feel no pain during their actions, as they are possessed by the spirits of the Nine Emperor Gods, who protect them from any harm or scarring. The mah song are carefully chosen and their role is to bring good luck to, and scare evil spirits away from the community by their fearless acts. The origin of the Vegetarian Festival goes back a century and a half to a time when Phuket was populated by many Chinese people working in the tin mine. To cater to the entertainment needs of the huge Chinese population, Chinese opera performers were hired. During the ninth Chinese lunar month there was an outbreak of an epidemic in Phuket that claimed several lives, and the performers also fell seriously ill. It was eventually reasoned that this outbreak was occurred because the Chinese community had forgotten to pay homage to the Nine Emperor Gods (Kiu Ong Iah) in the first nine days of the month. One of the performers was asked to go back to China and invite the Kiu Ong Iah to Phuket. After completing the appropriate rituals those afflicted with the disease made a complete recovery. The following year, to make sure that there was no repeat of the epidemic of the previous year, and to keep the Gods happy, the Chinese refrained from having meat, alcohol and sex. The epidemic passed and every year since then people in Phuket and other parts of Southern Thailand have continued to celebrate this festival.

Get your copy of the Vegetarian Thai Food Guide: http://www.eatingthaifood.com/vegetarian-thai-food-guide/ Eating delicious Thai food is the highlight of many people's trips to Thailand, but if you are a vegetarian or vegan, it can be sometimes be difficult to find the right Thai dishes to eat. One of my favorite vegetarian / vegan restaurants in Bangkok is known as Baan Suan Pai, a food court dedicated to eating healthy Thai food. Even though I'm not vegetarian, I love eating vegetarian Thai food here! At Baan Suan Pai vegetarian restaurant in Bangkok, they serve their food food court style - you order you meals and dishes, pay for them, and then find a place to sit. Here's a quick overview of the tasty Thai vegetarian food I ate in this video. 1. Gaeng Phet Fuktong (Vegetarian Thai Pumpkin Curry) is tasty curry made with chunks of healthy pumpkin stewed in chillies and coconut milk. It had a wonderful mild flavor to it, but it was extremely soothing - I loved it, one of my favorite vegetarian thai food dishes! 2. Gaeng Jued Mala (Bitter Melon Soup) is a bitter soup made with huge chunk of bitter melon and a few other herbs and vegetables. Bitterness can be a hard vegetable to get used to, but if you do enjoy it as a vegetarian or vegan, you'll love this dish at Baan Suan Pai. 3. Puak Tod (Taro Roll) is a loaf of ground up pieces of taro root caked together and fried on the outside. The dish was served with a nice sweet and sour sauce. Along with full plates of rice and mixed toppings, Baan Suan Pai also serves some incredible vegetarian Thai food snacks like this! 4. Kuay Teow Lui Suan (Fresh Noodle Rolls) is a Thai dish that made with fresh rice noodle warpers filled with lettuce, an assortment of Thai herbs, tofu, and mushrooms. The vegetarian roll are delicious when dipped in the sweet and sour sauce provided. 5. Het Hom Ping (Grilled Mushrooms) are my absolute favorite thing to eat when at this vegetarian restaurant in Bangkok. The mushrooms are so delicious that they actually taste like pieces of sirloin steak - but instead are purely vegetarian and vegan. These skewers are absolutely incredible and you don't want to miss them! That wraps up my vegetarian Thai food feast - all dishes were exceptional, especially the pumpkin curry, the fresh noodle rolls and the grilled mushroom skewers. Directions: To get to Baan Suan Pai take the BTS to Ari station, take exit 1 and go down the stairs to your left, walk along Phahon Yothin road for about one hundred meters until you reach a sign that says welcome to banana family park. Turn right into the small cafe alley way, walk all the way to the back past a few coffee shops and a few stores until you can smell the delicious vegetarian food. Hope you enjoyed this video on eating healthy vegetarian Thai food in Bangkok.

The history of the festival dates back to the 1800's when a group of Chinese opera performers were traveling through Thailand. After traveling around the country and performing they eventually made it to southern Thailand in Phuket. This is where they all become sick. After much contemplation and trying figure out just why they had become so ill, they finally decided that it was due to not honoring or showing respect to the Nine Emperor Gods in the Chinese Doaist belief. In order to get better from their sickness and better honor the gods, they determined it would be necessary to cleanse themselves by partaking in a number of different ceremonies, acts of purity and to eat a strict vegetarian diet for nine days straight. I'm not fully sure how the story turned out, but what we do know is that the Thailand vegetarian festival (เทศกาลกินเจ) is now an annual event that many Thais and foreigners alike participate it. The most prominent festival takes places in the south of Thailand, most famously in Phuket, where there's a large population of Chinese. In the south, one can witness many religious rituals, traditional ceremonies, and the most famous of everything, the self human flagellations. Some participating in the festival choose to mutiliate themselves by slicing and cutting of their bodies. They believe that they are posses by spirits and they are not actually hurting themselves in the process. In Bangkok however, the vegetarian festival is less about self mutilation, but more about a few rituals and lots and lots of vegetarian Thai food that sprawls throughout the entire city. Yaowarat Chinatown, is the home of the most prolific ceremony where you can find some ceremonies of lots of pure vegetarian food. In this video I take to the narrow streets of Yaowarat to eat and explore. In Part 1, I first indulge in a Chinese vegetarian meal that includes tofu, cabbage and stir fried noodles. Then I check out a temple and finally go to eat a delicious sweet snack known as kanom dub dab (ขนมตุ๊บตั๊บ). If you are ever in Thailand for the vegetarian festival celebration, be sure to eat lots of delicious food and catch some of the action!

Some participants engage in a number of extraordinary activities such as fire-walking over glowing coals, climbing ladders with rungs made of sharpened blades, piercing different parts of their bodies with various objects, and slicing their tongues with knives and swords. Those participating in the piercings and other activities (mah songs) prepare for the festival by abstaining from meat, alcohol and sex for the previous six days. The mah song say that they feel no pain during their actions, as they are possessed by the spirits of the Nine Emperor Gods, who protect them from any harm or scarring. The mah song are carefully chosen and their role is to bring good luck to, and scare evil spirits away from the community by their fearless acts. The origin of the Vegetarian Festival goes back a century and a half to a time when Phuket was populated by many Chinese people working in the tin mine. To cater to the entertainment needs of the huge Chinese population, Chinese opera performers were hired. During the ninth Chinese lunar month there was an outbreak of an epidemic in Phuket that claimed several lives, and the performers also fell seriously ill. It was eventually reasoned that this outbreak was occurred because the Chinese community had forgotten to pay homage to the Nine Emperor Gods (Kiu Ong Iah) in the first nine days of the month. One of the performers was asked to go back to China and invite the Kiu Ong Iah to Phuket. After completing the appropriate rituals those afflicted with the disease made a complete recovery. The following year, to make sure that there was no repeat of the epidemic of the previous year, and to keep the Gods happy, the Chinese refrained from having meat, alcohol and sex. The epidemic passed and every year since then people in Phuket and other parts of Southern Thailand have continued to celebrate this festival.

The Vegetarian Thai Green Curry is close to authentic thai made from homemade green curry paste with the vibrant fresh hot chilli peppers and green coriander leaves, ground with lemon grass, I like to load it with the choicest vegetables making it simply delectable and spicy. I personally like the curry being green, hence I grind some fresh coriander leaves or even Italian parsley, to give it a burst of emerald color.

One of the best places to eat vegetarian Thai food when you're in Bangkok is Chamlong Sandi Asoke (จำลอง สันติอโศก), also known as just Chamlong's Asoke. More details here: http://www.eatingthaifood.com/2011/07/bangkoks-vegetarian-grazing-zone-chamlongs-asoke-all-veg-food-court-at-chatuchak/ If you eat a strict diet of vegetarian of vegan food, traveling in Thailand or living in Bangkok, and eating local food can sometimes be a challenge. Many normal Thai dishes are filled with small amounts of meat, and even if meat isn't actually in the dish, there's often fish sauce or meat broth inside of some dishes - so that just goes to say that it can be a challenge to find good and authentic Thai vegetarian food (more tips in my vegetarian Thai eating guide: http://www.eatingthaifood.com/vegetarian-thai-food-guide/) In order to be certain you're getting purely vegan or vegetarian food when you're in Bangkok, you really need to look to some of the exclusive vegetarian restaurants. There are quite a few scattered around the city, but one of my favorites is a restaurant known as Chamlong Sandi Asoke (จำลอง สันติอโศก). It's really more of a food court, where there are a number of stalls where you can choose what to eat and sit down and eat them all. As soon as you arrive at this vegetarian grazing zone, you'll need to exchange your money for some coupons. I usually exchange about 100 baht per person, just to make sure I have enough money to get a few different dishes - believe me you'll want to try a few different things when you eat there. The great news for you, that is if you eat vegetarian, is that everything in the food court is exclusively vegetarian (and vegan), so you don't need to worry or even ask what they put in their cooking. There are many different vegetarian Thai dishes to choose from when you're at Chamlong Sandi Asoke (จำลอง สันติอโศก). There are a couple of places that seem to specialize in fake looking meat, that's really made from protein flakes or things like that, and then there are plenty of other vegetarian dishes. I normally like to start my vegetarian feast with spring rolls, and you can either choose to get the deep fried version or the fresh non-fried version - both are good, depending on how you're feeling for the day. You can then branch out and try some Thai vegetarian curries, or other dishes like grilled mushrooms, vegetarian noodles, or even vegetarian pork skewers (don't worry, even though it may look like meat, it's not real meat). One of my personal favorite vegetarian Thai dishes is tam ponlamai (ส้มตำผลไม้), or fruit salad, and I think they make a really tasty version at Chamlong Sandi Asoke (จำลอง สันติอโศก). The fruit salad includes a mixture of guava, rose apple, dragon fruit, watermelon, and a few other fruits, mixed with soy sauce, lime juice, lots of chilies, and some crushed peanuts. The result is an incredibly refreshing fruit salad that has a beautiful contrast of flavors, including spicy, sweet, and sour - I really enjoy it. If you go to Chamlong Sandi Asoke (จำลอง สันติอโศก), don't forget to try their version of Thai fruit salad. Another interesting vegetarian Thai dish to try is kanom jeen nam prik (ขนมจีนน้ำพริก), or white rice noodles served with a peanut based curry on top. It's rich and creamy, and if you love noodles, you'll probably love this dish. It can be a challenge to find good and authentic Thai vegetarian food, unless you go to the right places. Chamlong Sandi Asoke (จำลอง สันติอโศก) is one of the best restaurants for vegetarian food in Bangkok, and you'll find so many delicious things to try. How to get there: The restaurant is located very near to Chatuchak Weekend Market, and directly behind the IN Square shopping mall. There's a small road to the right hand side of IN Square mall. Walk through that street and at the end hang left and you'll see a small pedestrian gate, enter through the gate and you'll be at the restaurant.

New Thailand videos every Wednesday. Subscribe: https://www.youtube.com/user/darrenb3. *** Warning: Contains extreme piercings *** The festival is held in Phuket, Krabi and many other parts of Southern Thailand. This footage is from the 2012 Vegetarian Festival เทศกาลกินเจ (also called the Nine Emperor Gods Festival) in Krabi Town. Every year there is a parade through Krabi Town (about 18 km from Ao Nang) during the week of the Vegetarian Festival, and this video was filmed then. The parade leaves City Hall in Krabi Town at around 1PM and meanders through the streets, finishing outside Vogue Department Store. This video was filmed from outside Good Dream Guest House. Many types of objects are used in these piercings, I saw people pierced with beach umbrellas, garden tools, flowers, palm leaves, swords and many other things. Seeing this live gives a fascinating insight into Thai culture and traditions, and you'll certainly remember this part of your Thai holidays. I think it's one of the bloody best things to do in Krabi Thailand. The Vegetarian Festival, also known as the Festival of Ngan Kin Jeh, begins every year, in October, on the first day of the ninth lunar month of the Chinese calendar. The event is celebrated by the Chinese-Thai community in many parts of Southern Thailand including Krabi, Songkhla, Trang and Phuket. Despite it's name, food does not provide the central focus for the festival, but the white clothed devotees attending do adhere to a strict vegetarian diet for the 9 days of the event. This practice cleanses the spirit and makes merit. Some participants engage in a number of extraordinary activities such as fire-walking over glowing coals, climbing ladders with rungs made of sharpened blades, piercing different parts of their bodies with various objects, and slicing their tongues with knives and swords. Those participating in the piercings and other activities (mah songs) prepare for the festival by abstaining from meat, alcohol and sex for the previous six days. The mah song say that they feel no pain during their actions, as they are possessed by the spirits of the Nine Emperor Gods, who protect them from any harm or scarring. The mah song are carefully chosen and their role is to bring good luck to, and scare evil spirits away from the community by their fearless acts. The origin of the Vegetarian Festival goes back a century and a half to a time when Phuket was populated by many Chinese people working in the tin mine. To cater to the entertainment needs of the huge Chinese population, Chinese opera performers were hired. During the ninth Chinese lunar month there was an outbreak of an epidemic in Phuket that claimed several lives, and the performers also fell seriously ill. It was eventually reasoned that this outbreak was occurred because the Chinese community had forgotten to pay homage to the Nine Emperor Gods (Kiu Ong Iah) in the first nine days of the month. One of the performers was asked to go back to China and invite the Kiu Ong Iah to Phuket. After completing the appropriate rituals those afflicted with the disease made a complete recovery. The following year, to make sure that there was no repeat of the epidemic of the previous year, and to keep the Gods happy, the Chinese refrained from having meat, alcohol and sex. The epidemic passed and every year since then people in Phuket and other parts of Southern Thailand have continued to celebrate this festival.
