Description: Sai Bat (Alms Giving) is nowadays seen as a picturesque procession of monks. But for the people of Luang Prabang it's much more than meets the eye, it's part of their living Buddhist heritage. Have a look at this video 'A Day in a Buddhist Temple' to follow the daily routine of a young novice at Wat Syrimoungkhoun in Luang Prabang. The video was produced under the EU Switch Asia project Luang Prabang Handle with Care and aims at supporting the safe-keeping of local tradition and cultural heritage by creating a responsible tourism environment.
