Private Baci Ceremony, Luang Prabang
Join locals at a beautiful, mountain temple on the outskirts of Luang Prabang for an unforgettable evening experience. Head to Wat Phu at the base of Mount Phu Kao to experience a blessing ceremony carried out by locals. Prepare to be left feeling enchanted and relaxed after the ceremony ends.
The Wat Phu temple will be lit by candles making this experience even more tranquil. Watch the sun set over the temple as the blessing ceremony begins once everyone is seated in the temple. The Baci ceremony as it’s known in Laos, is a traditional blessing ceremony which offers good luck and good health to all its participants. Now a national custom, the ceremony starts with locals passing trays of beautiful flowers and chanting Buddhist mantras.
After the chanting has come to an end, you’ll be given a cotton bracelet and offered an individual blessing. Each piece of cotton has a knot tied in it before it’s wrapped around your wrist as a sign of good luck. The ceremony ends and you’re free to head back down into the city with your cotton bracelet as a reminder of the experience.
