Laos Travel Video - Finally Found Love, Finally Found Laos

For those who missed it: Finally, there is a professional tourism video about Laos available. Made by Ideasquest for their client ispot Travel information Center, it is in the tradition of the Incredible India campaign, follows a couple through their different experiences in Laos. Well produced, well written, and I kinda like the claim "Finally found love, finally found Laos".

One more thing...

Just a few days after I arrived in Bangkok, good news came from Laos. The best Lao movie ever, At The Horizon, is now available online. The uncensored version costs 9 USD, and don't even think about complaining. This movie was done by volunteers, the few dollars they had were sound for some food for the actors and to rent equipment. And yes, YOU expat in Vientiane, it is time to prove that supporting the Lao art is more than attending some fancy exhibition or the after show party in Luang Prabang. 9 Dollar is nothing for the expats in Laos (including the teachers), but it is a big motivation for the film makers. So, CLICK AND BUY!
