If you interested at the Monks’ alms procession, please be ready at 5.30. – Daily dawn, saffron clad monks pad barefoot through the streets while pious townsfolk place tiny ball of sticky rice in there begging bowls. It’s quiet, meditative ceremony through which monks demonstrate their vows of poverty and humility while lay Buddhists gain spiritual merit by the act of respectful giving.

Although such processions occur all over Laos, Old Luang Prabang’s peaceful atmosphere and extraordinary concentration of mist-shrouded temple means that the morning’s perambulations along Th Sakkarin and Th Kamal create an especially romantic scene.
