Purple Toilet Paper, ah yes! Nobody knows, why toilet paper in Laos is of a certain purple colour.

Could it be a reference to the old ‘rough’ paper of former communist countries (to make even the last bum a Red)? :)

Certainly the information for the case here is not available. Funnily you can find the same paper and colour in the whole country, most hotels have it as well.

    […] Vientiane will get you into the mood for the whole country already, things are going slowly here; it’s easy to explore and you will find signs of forgotten times and its easy-going people. […]

    For me, they created this purple tissue to make it more attractive and grab the attention of the buyers. In this way many people will buy this product.

    The country of Laos became popular because they had a very extraordinary purple toilet paper instead of white toilet paper. This is commonly used in their place.
