Phuket people were ready for the coming Vegetarian Festival 2010 which would be held during October 8th-16th. In front of Jui Tui Tao Bo Keng Shrine, there were many food stalls set up and selling vegetarian food. Apart from the food, white clothes are the best selling items during this time. However, not so many people are buying the more expensive white clothes due to the economic situation.
In Phuket Town, everywhere is decorated with the yellow flags, a symbol marking the Vegetarian Festival. Some people are already wearing white costumes in order to welcome the festival.
