* ''Film/TheKillingFields'', obviously. Played straight with Spalding Gray's ''Film/SwimmingToCambodia'', which talked about his adventures in Thailand between shooting days.
-->Farewell, to the fantastic breakfasts, free every morning. You walked down and there they are waiting on you with the papaya, mango, and pineapple like I'd never tasted before. Farewell, to the Thai maids with the king-sized cotton sheets and the big king-sized beds. Farewell, to the lunches. Fresh meat flown in from America, daily. Roast potatoes, green beans and roast lamb, at 110 degrees under a circus tent, according to British Equity. Farewell to the drivers with the tinted glasses and the Mercedes with the tinted windows. Farewell to the cakes, and teas and ices every day exactly at four o'clock. Farewell to those beautiful smiling people. Farewell to that single, fresh rose in a vase on my bureau in the hotel every day. And just as I was climbing into that first-class seat, and wrapping myself in a blanket, just as I was adjusting the pillow from behind my head, and having a sip of that champagne, and just as I was adjusting and bringing down my Thai purple sleep mask, I had an inkling, I had a flash. I suddenly thought I knew what it was that had killed Marilyn Monroe.

** Somewhat a subversion in that the person invoking the trope, the well-to-do Laotian, Ted, is even more assimilated than Kahn, and doing this for the benefit of his community's place in American society, rather than because he cares or even knows what is going on in Laos. He outright states the reason he is forming his paramilitary group to gain notoriety for Laotian immigrants by emulating the Cuban exile community. He invokes this trope to create parallels to the Cuban LaResistance by likewise opposing the communist government in his home country.

So, when a piece of media goes to Southeast Asia, it usually goes on a Holiday In Cambodia. The setting will either be little jungle villages with wooden huts or cities so seedy they leave marks on the screen. Vice will be both upheld and punished, with the main characters either being told "[[YouNoTakeCandle Me love you long time]]" by a woman (very often a [[AsianHookerStereotype prostitute]]) who [[UnsettlingGenderReveal may or may not have a vagina]], or being thrown in some [[HellholePrison hellhole of a prison]] on drug charges. And someone, some time, is getting a gun in the face. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Oh, and there may be elephants.]]
