discover asia's daily rituals

.
While travelling, it's often the little things that make the biggest impact. Your favourite travel moments tend to be unplanned, unexpected and remarkably understated: simply witnessing a daily ritual that is so different to our own can be incredibly captivating. Here are a handful of fantastic experiences that show you a unique perspective on a country through some of its little-known rituals.

EARLY MORNING TAI CHI, VIETNAM

If you’ve ever seen a group of people in the park slowly moving in sync, you’ve probably witnessed Tai Chi. In Hanoi, Tai Chi is a daily ritual for many of the city's residents. Witnessing this reveals a peaceful “spiritual” side to Hanoi that many visitors miss.

Why not try this experience as part of a Countryside, Caves and Beach holiday?

LUANG PRABANG INSIDERS, LAOS

Watching the daily ritual of monks giving alms (Tak Bat) is one of the most popular experiences in Luang Prabang. In our Luang Prabang Insiders tour, we take you to a lesser-visited temple for a unique perspective on this special practice. 

This experience can be woven into our fantastic holidayLaos to Thailand via the Mekong.
