The vegetarian festival this year is expected to see more people observing the festival and higher spending than the previous year.

 

According to a survey by the University of Thai Chamber of Commerce, the Thai Vegetarian Festival which will run from October 20-28 will be more active as people will observe the festival as a merit-making for the beloved King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

 

A survey by the university’s  Center for Economic and Business Forecasting (CEBF) shows that 36.5% of people asked said they will exclude meat and eat vegetarian food throughout the festival, increasing from 35.5% in 2017.
