What To Expect

The sacred alms giving tradition of Buddhists monks in Laos has continued to amaze and humble the rest of the world. This sacred practice, which is a daily ritual for the monks, involve a procession of three hundred walking silently by. They are begging for their daily food and collecting sticky rice, and other offerings in their bronze bowls. This expresses their humility, and gives the community a chance to give offerings. You will be able to see this mystical experience first hand early in the morning, and even be able to participate in it by providing an offering of food for them. Afterwards, you will take a short drive off to the Kuang Si Waterfalls, with its white limestone and calcified tiers. You can even take a dip into the cool blue water of the pools beneath, where you can reflect on the mystical culture of Buddhism in Laos.

    Tour guide needs to be more lively and communicate effectively. This should have been a better tour if not for rescheduling of the Alms Giving and issues on tour inclusions like lunch. Overall, still a worthwhile tour, the falls was magnificent.
