Luang Prabang is quite a religious city. Each village provides food and funding for its individual temple on a daily basis. It is perfectly acceptable and sometimes even encouraged for foreigners to observe religious activities. However, you should maintain a respectful boundary. You may sit in the back of a temple while the monks are chanting, but do not take pictures from inside the pagoda. You may watch the morning alms-giving ceremony, but do not take part unless you understand the significance of the tradition and it is deeply meaningful for you. This deference will show your respect for religion and its believers.
