Where To Go This Vegetarian (Jay) Festival 2022

It’s that time of year again where the whole of Thailand suddenly becomes the most vegan friendly place in the world! This year the Vegetarian Festival (Jay Festival) runs from September 25th – October 5th and there are plenty of Jay menus (see our full Jay menus list here) and festivities to explore during this time! First up, Yaowarat!
