Laos: Welcome to the zoo...

... where you can see Lao natives in their natural habitat: "Continuing its tradition of creating award-winning immersive experiences around the globe, Adventures by Disney announced today an all-new destination for 2013 - Southeast Asia. Featuring Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia, the 12-day, 11-night itinerary will give travelers the opportunity to experience some of Asia's most exotic and culturally-rich cities - including Saigon, Hanoi, Hoi An, Luang Prabang, Siem Reap and Angkor Wat - in a way they may not have thought possible; as a family.(...) Families will work together in Laos at an organic rice farm where they will have a hand in each of the 13 stages of rice production" Don't even start telling me this is a good opportunity to see the local life. Organic rice makes a small percentage of Lao rice, and what is nice for a day trip for tourists is hard work for a farmers family. And I actually doubt that the rice farm is real - usually it is a make up, with a safe environment and an American Standard toilet hidden in a bamboo hut.
