Tak Bat (Alms Giving), Luang Prabang
Laos, Luang Prabang and The North

Info : Tak Bat (Alms Giving)

An early start in Luang Prabang is rewarded with the colouful sight of hundreds of saffron robed Buddhist monks in procession through the sleepy streets of Luang Prabang. The monks receieve their alms of handfuls of rice from kneeling locals and you are able to participate in giving yourselves. Your guide will talk you through the significance of the offering. Alternatively you can simply stand back and admire the scene, the procession of monks makes for some amazing photo opportunities as they pass though the backdrop of ancient ornate temples and French  Indochinese architecture.
