Americans tend to be very judgemental about prostitution, but more towards the men. They see all the women as "victims"

I think it is not right to put an ATM in front of the temple. I saw that in one of the images.

But why next to a temple? Near shopping mall would've been more feasible....

The ATM is beside the main road so people can see it.

It's not at the front of the temple because there is a wall and no gate into the temple grounds where the ATM is situated.

The temple doesn't own the land outside the walls, only within the walls, so they have no say what the land can be used for.

When they replenish the machine does the ATM company armed guards with bullet proof truck to get money to the ATM locations?

I belive the machine itself is no big issue to install.The
problem is banking and reliable fiber optic and network to
maintain the system.

I wondered about the lack of maintenance factor because most southeast Asian people do not really care about keeping up of anything. They just use it and abuse it until bygones be bygones.

You'll have to go for yourself and see if you really want to know more, but all of the clientele I've seen there is Asian men. I've seen a couple locations with girls from Vietnam, a lot of tribal Lao mountain girls, and a lot of Lao Lum girls. These are mostly Karaoke bars but some are just plain brothels. I counted at least 10-15 in the village, which is a lot because it's a very small village. The tourists come to see the waterfall at the end of the road and there are a bunch of foreign guesthouses there. The brothels are concentrated around the intersection with the market and the ATM.


Serious question Mak Nad, where and when in Tad Lo should I look for this?
