Get more Tips here! http://www.destinationtips.com When traveling to a country like Laos, failing to adhere to its cultural and unspoken social rules could potentially turn your trip into a nightmare. So here are 5 Things NOT TO Do in Laos! 1. Don't Keep Valuables in Your Pockets According to travel advisories, pickpocketing is huge throughout the country, especially where tourists convene. Also, make sure to remove all of your possessions out of your vehicle, and hold on tight to your purse while walking down the street. 2. Don't Wear Revealing Clothing Many cities are homes to sacred temples, so showing respect through your clothing choices is encouraged. Arms, shoulders, and knees should be covered at all times. If you feel you're getting strange looks, cover up! 3. Don't Give Your Passport as Collateral You rent out a bicycle or motorbike to make your way around town. But many of these small shop owners are actually scammers that ask you to leave your passport as collateral for a bike rental. They then have someone "steal" the bike. You're charged a hefty fee, and your passport is held until you fork over the cash. 4. Don't Show PDA If you want to hold hands, hug, and smooch your partner, make sure it isn't done in public. In Laos this makes the locals very uncomfortable. If you just can't keep your hands off your honey, do so in private. 5. Don't Be Unhygienic Always make sure you look as presentable as possible. Looking a disheveled, hot mess in the temples is a sign of disrespect. Cleanliness is a big deal in Laos, and bad body odor will get you dirty looks. So apply deodorant so you don't stink up the streets. Where do you want to know what NOT to do in next? Comment Below!

Xinjiang, officially the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, is an autonomous region of China in the northwest of the country. It is the largest Chinese administrative division, the 8th largest country subdivision in the world, spanning over 1.6 million km2 (0.64 million square miles). It contains the disputed territory of Aksai Chin administered by China. Xinjiang borders the countries of Mongolia, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India. The extremely rugged Karakoram, Kunlun, and Tian Shan mountain ranges occupy much of Xinjiang's borders, as well as its western and southern regions. Xinjiang also borders Tibet Autonomous Region and the provinces of Gansu and Qinghai. The most well-known route of the historical Silk Road ran through the territory from the east to its northwestern border. In recent decades, abundant oil and mineral reserves have been found in Xinjiang, and it is currently China's largest natural gas-producing region. The China's Xinjiang Culture Week aimed to enhance the friendship, exchanges and cooperation between the people of the two countries and help Lao people to better understand Xinjiang’s diverse culture.

VO Prime Minister Thongloun Sisoulith urges to improve mechanisms for collecting revenue, warns to penalise corrupt officials. INTRO: Prime Minister Thongloun Sisoulith has called for the financial sector to improve mechanisms for collecting revenue and addressing financial leaks while warning to penalise corrupt officials. STORY: Prime Minister Thongloun made the call while addressing a nation-wide budgetary and treasury meeting held in Vientiane on Thursday, which was attended by more than 400 officials. The Premiere’s remarks came following a report about the revenue shortfall over the past 10 months of 2015-16 fiscal year, which could further escalate budgetary tensions and hold back national development. He reiterated the need for transparency in collecting revenue in which officials in charge must enhance their responsibilities and be trustworthy to serve the nation and people. The Premiere said that mechanisms or organisations not working properly would need to be addressed promptly. The government would not allow dysfunctional mechanisms or organisations and other barriers to continue to disrupt revenue collection efforts. He added that officials who violated financial regulations and laws needed to be stopped to prevent them from conducting further such malpractices. The Prime Minister encouraged corrupt officials to change their attitudes and instead dedicate their efforts to serving the interests of the nation as the government is determined to tackle the misappropriation. Referring to a lesson learnt from China, Prime Minister Thongloun said the Chinese government tried not to leave any opportunity for any officials to be corrupt given that corruption not only resulted in the state losing huge amounts of revenue but also losing capable officials. He said it was critical to collect revenue through electronic systems while closing gaps that emerged in the financial sector while being transparent to serve the nation. In April this year the National Assembly approved the government's proposal to reduce the 2015-16 fiscal year budget. This meant the plan for revenue collection for this fiscal year was adjusted down from 26.159 trillion kip to 23.7 trillion kip and budget expenditure from 31.946 trillion kip to 31.118 trillion kip. According to the Ministry of Finance, the revenue collection over the past 10 months of the fiscal year attained only 74.52 percent of the annual plan. The government projected that the revenue collection might not accomplish the target again this fiscal year which will end on September 30. However, Prime Minister Thongloun urged financial officials to concentrate on collecting the revenue above the target set for the next quarter (October-December, 2016) in order to offset the shortfall in this fiscal year. He said over the past one or two months, revenue collection in several provinces had increased significantly after the government reinforced its inspection on financial sources and closed loopholes which resulted in previous financial leaks. Laos is a least developed country in Asia which requires a huge financial capital to boost socio-economic development, but since 2013, the country encountered the revenue shortfall, forcing the government to stall many development projects to avoid a fiscal crisis.

Fisherman Sam Niang, from Laos, crosses dangerous rapids to feed his family. "Every time I cross, I get a knot in my stomach," he says. "I'm afraid of falling. I'm afraid of dying. If I don't go, I can't feed my family."

http://www.nomadcapitalist.com Andrew is spending the day as a tourist in Vang Vieng, Laos, while talking about things frontier market entrepreneurs should consider for their business. ----- ABOUT NOMAD CAPITALIST Andrew Henderson travels to nearly 30 countries every year to stay up to date on the latest legal strategies for entrepreneurs and investors to pay less tax, grow their money faster, and build their personal freedom. Andrew started Nomad Capitalist to help people like you follow his five magic words: "go where you're treated best". He has personally started foreign companies, opened offshore bank accounts, and obtained multiple second passports. He also learned the hard way that perpetual information seeking is often the biggest barrier to getting the results you want. Many entrepreneurs spend months and even years constantly researching how to pay less in tax or live overseas, but are afraid to make the jump. As a result, they get stuck and keep paying a fortune in taxes and never get the lifestyle they deserve. Nomad Capitalist's Youtube channel is based on Andrew's vision that focusing on the end result, rather than the latest shiny object, is the best way to actually obtain the benefits of the Nomad Capitalist lifestyle.
