Getting the chance to eat some of the local dishes during a trip overseas can be one of the most enjoyable things about taking a holiday abroad.
Trying out the delicious and delicately fragranced foods of Thailand has long been popular with tourists to the country, but people staying in hotels in Bangkok during October will have the chance to try out some very special cuisine.
From 14th October, the city's Chinatown will be hosting its annual Vegetarian Festival, which sees many people from the community choosing to go without any meat until 23rd October.
Created after a Chinese opera group many years ago managed to survive an illness by taking on a meat-free and meditative lifestyle, the festival marks their miraculous recovery as well as offering the chance to take time to reflect and eat healthier foods.
While some areas in Bangkok will also take part in the festival, the main events will be held within Chinatown.
Anyone staying in the Grand Millennium Sukhumvit Bangkok who wishes to take part in the festival and only eat vegetarian dishes for the duration should look out for restaurants hanging yellow flags outside, as these will be participating.
