From my experience travelling to Bangkok for holiday, I could get film, but at higher prices then what I could have gotten back home. Places to get them are few are far between as well, so I advise you to stock up on as much as you think you are going to need, and then some. Remember those spare batteries and a cleaning kit wouldn't hurt as well.

i love neopan too.. and tri-x of course.. but was wondering if its a waste to shoot in b&w when i see zoosh's pics of laos in colour.. alternatively, i could use my grd to shoot colour and the rf to shoot b&w.. or shld it be the other way round? hmmm...

Well, then you have to decide which is your stronger medium. I, for one, certainly will not consider it a waste to shoot in pure B&W if I know that medium is my stronger forte.

It has largely to do with your own personal style of photography which will determine your preference :) Have fun!
