The 2018 Phuket Por Tor Festival is taking place from 29th August – 9th September. Also known as the Hungry Ghost festival, it is an important merit-making event for the ethnic Chinese. Special food, flowers and candles are offered to ancestors on altars. Other offerings are made to ‘feed the ghosts without relatives’ that are said to have been released from hell during the festival.
