For reference the CIA World Factbook 2002 import is at Talk:Laos/CIA World Factbook 2002 import.


Comparative awe-inspiration

My dearest Anonymous, find me something in Laos as impressive as Angkor Wat, and you can keep your comment. Otherwise I'll stand by my ground that Laos' temples are not as awe-inspiring as Cambodia's. Jpatokal 02:02, 4 Aug 2005 (EDT)


License issues??

A lot in this article seems to come from Lonely Planet (shoestring SE-asia), some descriptions word-by-word. For example Lao or Laos section and speed/slowboat section contain very known constructions to me.

Hi Anonymous, as for the speed boat section, I did write it without having read the "Shoestring"-Edition. Nevertheless, I did read several Laos-guidebooks, so some expressions might be similar, but the text almagamates all those info and also contains personal experiences. To be clear: I did not willingly copy one line from any other guidebook. I would be surprised if I managed by coincidence to rewrite exactly like the LP-Stuff, that would be something like PSI, don't you think? Information like those on casualties are of course taken from one of the books, but this is not copying or plagiate. Maybe you can elaborate the exact matches and/ or work them over? --Ront 05:11, 15 September 2006 (EDT)

Vaccinations and Health

Wikitravel on Laos with a bare mention of malaria, and none of cholera, typhoid, dengue, Japanese Encephalitis, and hepatitis?

Condoms

The purpose of this site is not to promote or facilitate promiscuity. I see no reason to have the condom information here.
