"Read this before u visit LP" Luang Prabang Things to Do Tip by SINtraveller

Luang Prabang Things to Do: 459 reviews and 1,013 photos


One of the attractions in LP is the morning alm giving procession. Supposingly to be a peaceful event, yet what i saw was kinda of a disturbing scene: a handful of tourists dashing across the procession, trying to take close shots of the monks and the locals that gave the alms. Imagine how would u feel if u are the monk, when someone run across u, take picture of u with flashes right infront. So what if that photo taken would become an award winning photo. It is still ugly, cause it is taken through an ugly means....

Anyway, this poster can be seen everywhere in LP, requesting tourists to respect the local tradition. So if u happen to be in LP, please be matured, and be responsible...
