JETLAG TRAVEL GUIDE TO PHAÎC TAN:
Sunstroke on a Shoestring

Authors: Santo Cilauro, Tom Gleisner, Rob Sitch

For too long now Phaîc Tan has been closed off from the outside world, a country visited each year by just a handful of hardy travellers, aid agency workers and hostage negotiators. But now, thanks to this fully up-dated Jetlag guide, everything you need to know about planning a trip to Phaîc Tan, birthplace of the trouser press and irritable bowel syndrome, is here.

From the authors of best-selling Molvanîa comes another hilarious send-up of the always-culturally sensitive travel guide.

Whether you'd prefer to taste the Phaîc Tanese dish guoman (a local duck delicacy whereby the bird is plucked, rolled in spices, and slowly roasted over hot coals before being brought to the table and killed), or go brown-water rafting on the mudslides of the heavily deforested jungles of the north, or gain insight into the unusual customs of the Phaîc Tanese people (Phaîc Tanese men will often touch a blonde-headed child because so doing is believed to bring gold, and will likewise touch the breasts of a blonde-headed woman because so doing is believed to bring pleasure), Jetlag's travel guide is the essential guide for the undiscerning traveller. A fascinating land of contrasts with one foot in the past and another striding determinedly forward, Phaic Tan truly is a nation going in circles.

See a  map of Phaîc Tan and check out their website: Phaîc Tan Tourism Bureau.

The authors are Australian filmmakers; their stated purpose is to take people where they don't want to go.
