One of the most unique experiences in Thailand is a visit to a Buddhist temple to offer alms to the monks. Each morning before dawn (pick-up from your hotel approximately is at 06:00), the monks put on their distinctive saffron robes and quietly pad bare feet along the streets, carrying alms bowls and receiving boiled rice and condiments from the citizens of Thailand. In return people receive the monks’ blessings. You can participate in this very special Thai custom by personally giving alms. A brief exploration at the temple may be possible as well. If religious festivals permit, it would also be possible to witness the monks praying in the early morning. A recommended enlightening tour.
