First of all, this isn’t a horror movie; it’s real as real can be. Personally, I cringed while researching on this topic. If you have a weak heart, please don’t go further with watching this video. Viewer’s discretion is advised. I’m your presenter Yakkie and I welcome you to today’s episode of Wonders of the World on Youth Shades TV. Enjoy!
Also known as the Nine Emperor Gods Festival or the Kin Jay Festival, the Phuket Vegetarian Festival is an annual event celebrated primarily by the Chinese community in Thailand and around Southeast Asia.
Running for nine days, the vegetarian festival in Phuket is considered by many to be the most extreme and bizarre of festivals in Thailand. Devotees not only give up meat for the holiday, a select few participants actually practice self mutilation in the form of piercing their cheeks with swords, walking on hot coals, and climbing ladders made of knife blades!
