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.

Matt really listened to what we were looking for and our itinerary was a joint project making good use of his knowledge and experience. We were really impressed by how well most of the hotels and guides were integrated into their local communities and were particularly impressed by Pong who guided us in the north of Laos. He really went the extra mile to help us meet and talk with local people and he was clearly well known and liked in the villages we went to!
