The morning Alms giving (Tak Bak)
For a very long time, this has been a common sight in Luang Prabang. In the early morning, monks on their yellow clothes line up and walk down the road of Sakkaline, do the tak bak ceremony in which they receive gifts of food, flowers, and incense prepared by the locals. This is a beautiful culture feature of the city, however, it has been spoiled by tourists. The walk of monks attracts way too many lens and splash which makes it look more like a walk of those models in the runaway. Tourists should be aware of this fact and not spoil a beautiful tradition of the locals.
