One of the traditions in Luang Prabang is the procession of the morning all the monks leave their monastery at dawn, barefoot and silent, dressed in orange and begging bowl in hand. They parade in the light of dawn to collect their daily food as their faithful devotees distribute, lined the streets on their knees as a sign of respect, putting his hand a portion of each offering.

Unlike other countries, Laos seeks to encourage eco-tourism projects. Many rural areas, forestry for the most part, are now classified and protected to maintain the landscape, flora unique (multiple pockets of primary forest) and fauna.
