Sepak Takraw in Laos

This popular game in Laos is a game played normally by boys and young men around S.E. Asia. You use your feet to hit a ball made out of "rattan," a material often found around S.E. Asia. It is a bit like volleyball, but with your feet. In Laos, most people call it "thuck thay." Here is a video shot in Laung Prabang.
