Luang Prabang is well known for its more than 30 temples and hundreds of monks. One of the best things to do in town is totally free, but terribly rewarding: stop in one of these temples for a chat with a novice monk. These young men are between the ages of 7 and 19, and many are studying English. They will be eager to practice, but make sure to speak slowly so you can be understood. If you are woman, never touch a monk, or even hand them anything. When you part, be sure to exchange emails, as he'll likely want a pen pal. Be advised that a request for sponsorship may follow.
