Culture Trip stands with Black Lives Matter. Touching a monk or novice is considered rude, and is totally taboo if you are a woman. Women should not hand anything directly to a monk, but instead should pass the item to a male intermediary. If you are trekking, stay on the path and better yet, go with a guide who knows the land and the language and can keep everyone safe. Often the underpaid police force is simply looking to extort money from tourists. The justice system is not the same in Laos as other countries, and the best thing for everyone is to comply, save face and move on.

However, despite reading lots of threads on here and buying the lonely planet book, we are still unsure where to start and what we can do. I have seen many itineries but not many suit what we are looking for. This being Keeping the kids busy at all times. Bored Kids can ruin a holiday as I'm sure you all know. I'm not asking people to do the job for me, but I would be VERY grateful for any suggested itineries bearing in mind the kids.
