|Luang Prabang, Lao People's Democratic Republic|
This morning we rise early and join the local people to participate in the daily morning food and alms offering to the Buddhist monks with their black alms bowls. From there, we visit the morning Dala Market where you will see such diverse offerings as dried buffalo skin, local tea, and hill-tribe weavings among the chickens, vegetables and local produce. We will also visit the minority villages of Ban Xom and Ban Thapene. We carry onto the huge spectacular Khouangsi waterfall where we can splash around in the pools or walk along the cool forest paths. We’ll have a picnic lunch on the way. We return to the town in late afternoon.
