We really enjoyed this set of cartoons distributed by Lao’s government, on the subject of respectful behavior for tourists. The cartoonist is Lao, and he’s completely nailed the "hippie backpacker dude" with scraggly hairstyle and earrings, and his hard-partying girlfriend who wears tight lowriders and tanktops into wats. As you can see, they’re demonstrating everything you shouldn’t do in Laos.
