Monk’s walk, Vientiane, Laos

You will have to get up before the sun if you want to catch the hundreds of orange-robed monks as they walk in single file through the streets of Laos’ capital, Vientiane. The event that takes place every morning, is the only time that the monks are able to accept donations from the public in the form of food.

Localsline up at the roadside to offer bananas and food parcels as hundreds of Buddhist monks materialise in the coming light. The sight is sensational, although it is a tradition that only early rising travellers have the chance to witness.
