    What to Expect
    Just look on any Laotian's wrist and you will find white cotton strings, a sign they've taken part in a Baci ceremony. There is no set formula for a Baci ceremony, but a few common themes persist. One is that older members of the family or community dress in white and gather around the Baci recipient in a home or garden. Another is that the ritual is aided by fresh flowers, traditional music, or chanting.

    Baci ceremonies are performed to commemorate life events like births, marriages, and deaths, but they are also common at New Year’s parties and other special occasions.

    The ritual is thought to bring peace to the soul, as well as good fortune, honesty, and warmth. The white cotton thread symbolizes continuity and brotherhood, and should be worn for at least three days. This 1.5-hour Baci ceremony concludes with return transfer to your hotel.
