Alms Collection In Luang Prabang

Another day in Luang Prabang, I woke up at 5.30am to walk over to Sisavangvong Road to watch the monks come out of their monasteries for their daily ritual of alms collection.The Laotians who still live within the old city still practice the age old tradition. However, it is a pity that there aren't that many homes around any more as many have been rented or converted into businesses for tourists. I got up each morning to watch the ritual.
