What To Expect

The sacred ritual of alms giving takes place every morning in Luang Prabang, and you will be able to take part in this mystical tradition through this unique experience. Through a pickup at your hotel, you will be transported to the location where you will be best able to witness a procession of three hundred young monks, walking silently in the early morning, and humbly begging for their daily meal. They collect sticky rice into their bowls, and whatever food offering that the local people may give. This is a ritual steeped in religion and virtues of humility, and you will be able to take part in this sacred experience by also being able offer up some food for the monks as well. Beyond the regular tour, this experience is fulfilling and offers you new insight into Buddhism. Take a side trip to a local market and immerse yourself in the busy mornings of the locals before being dropped off back to your hotel.
