The vegetarian festival this year is between 8 and 17 October. If you want to see this festival in Chanthaburi, Wat Khet Na Bunyaram is a place that can’t be missed.
Wat Khet Na Bunyaram (Peuk Dian Tue) is a Vietnamese temple, located in downtown Chanthaburi. This temple was founded by Vietnamese people who moved to stay in the area.
In the temple, there’re not only plenty of vegetarian food selling at a reasonable price, but also free vegetarian meals serving for everyone.
My favorite vegetarian meal here is a sweet noodle at “Pae Nguan” restaurant. It’s something between a main dish and a dessert. The homemade noodle is soft and sticky. The soup is sweet and the crystallize sweet balls are chewy.
Besides vegetarian food, if you come to the temple in the evening, you can observe the religious ceremony and enjoy the Chinese opera.
