In the early coolness of the morning, walk downtown through quiet streets to watch the daily procession of about three hundred silent young monks, collecting sticky rice & other food offerings in their bronze bowls.
The ritual is linked to a Buddhist tradition where monks beg for their daily food as a way to demonstrate humility. Almsgiving is an important religious act in Buddhism & must be carried out respectfully by locals & travelers alike.
If you'd like to be involved in the offering of food, your guide will be more than happy to show you the best way to interact with the monks.
Watch as the monks disappear down the road in a long, saffron-coloured ribbon. Feel free to take photos, however please do so discreetly & refrain from using your camera's flash.
Afterwards, stroll through Luang Prabang’s morning market where you can pick up delicious sandwiches & smoothies for breakfast as well as observe how the locals haggle for fresh meat, fruit & vegetables.
