If you ever want to see monks collecting alms while on holiday in Thailand you will need to get up while it’s still dark. Monks leave their temple just as the sun is about to rise and they can see the hairs on the back of their hands. At most temples, monks leave in small groups or even alone in some cases. While at other temples they form a long line and go out together. Notice that monks don’t wear shoes while on the alms round and so Buddhists offering alms should also take off their shoes. If they don’t they will be slightly higher than monks. I shot these photos early in the morning at the main market in Nan town.
