Offering food to the monks is one of the oldest and most common Buddhist rituals. Buddhist monks still rely
on receiving alms for most of their food. The monks leave the monasteries early in the morning. They walk single file,
oldest first, carrying their alms bowls in front of them. Laypeople wait for them, sometimes kneeling,
and place food, flowers or incense sticks in the bowls. Women must be careful not to touch
the monks as it is for bidden in the Buddhist religion.
Offering food is a meritorious act that also reminds us the importance of giving to others. What do you offer to the monks? You can give many different things for Tak-Bat. Usually, it will be cooked food, cooked rice, bottles of water or milk, or other instant food, and fruits. No worry, hotel prepares this for you.

However at the Vijitt Resort Phuket the rubber tree plantation remains as part of our environmental programme.
