Also known as Kew Ong Yeah, this nine-day festival is a celebration of the spirits of the Nine Emperor Gods as their spirits descend on this earth via the possession of mediums. Apart from these mediums being put into a trance, you will also be able to witness rituals such as skewering and firewalking. If you only have a day to spare, make it the last day of this festival when the Gods are sent off to the sea through a procession. This ‘Emperor Boat’ is escorted by other multicolored floats.
