Not quite sure what to make of this - I don't think this is a spoof site... meet Disneylao

Yeah I read that yesterday with a great deal of, er uhm, skepticism. Is this for real? At least build it in Vientiane or near the Chinese border near the planned rail route, not middle of nowhere Thakhaek. Checked calendar, April 1st is a ways off ;-)

I'm guessing someone didn't realise that you can't legally just add "Disney" as a suffix to your crappy, small theme park to try and attract tourists.

I think I should rename my apartment "Disneyflat" or "iFlat" (to attract the Apple fans) and start charging admission to watch me wash my dishes....

In the spirit of Huck Finn, wouldn't you charge them admission so they could wash your dishes?

It's a totally immersive London experience - visit a real, overpriced London flat! Marvel at the inefficient heating! Avoid eye contact with the neighbours when you pass them in the hallways!

But I won't make them wash my dishes. Their hands will be too full with overpriced concession-stand snacks and drinks (that's where the real profits are to be had!)

Still trying to determine if this is a real story or not!

I have seen reports that there will 20-30 special economic zones established in Laos for ventures like this and the casinos ,mainly for chinese and thai tourists. Isolated a bit so the patrons have to buy all inclusive packages.
I think this is real but the current state of China's economy may see it put on the back burner.

Alleged smoke and mirrors designed to drive up land prices...
