Private Baci Ceremony
Luang Prabang, Laos
After another of your excursions you have the opportunity to participate in a private Baci Ceremony, which is a ritual in Lao culture used to celebrate important events and occasions.
The Baci is performed in celebration of an important event such as weddings, births or for welcoming guests, and is a means of expressing good will and good luck to others. The ritual is likely to involve the decoration of flowers, tying strings around a person's wrists to preserve good luck and ending with a feast of food and rice wine.
