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.  

Customer Feedback
The guides and drivers couldn't have been better, 10 out of 10. Dao was outstanding. He made the trip extra special for us. His knowledge of the area and the whole country, history etc. was fantastic. He was brilliant with the children too, he made the trip fun, exciting and safe. If ever he was talking to a local in Lao, he would always involve us in the conversation and explain what was happening. At the end of our 9 days with him we didn't want him to go.
