No matter what time of year you venture to Thailand, there are so many Thai festivals throughout the calendar, your visit is bound to coincide with a fabulous event. Thai festivals are colorful, fascinating and sometimes bizarre, but always huge fun.
1. Vegetarian Festival – 23 September - 3 October 2014
To demonstrate that Thai festivals are for every occasion is the Vegetarian Festival. However, it is not the vegetables and vegetarianism which people flock to see; it is the mutilation which people perform on themselves which has become synonymous with the festival. People pierce their flesh using random objects, in order to show their devotion to God. A stunning spectacle, if somewhat gruesome at times.
