A Romanian village has received a tourism boost thanks to a Snoop Dogg typo.

The rapper posted a selfie on Instagram in which the location was listed as Bogata – which is a small village in Transylvania – rather than Bogota in Colombia.

Romanians quickly spotted the mistake and started tweeting about it.

One said: “Good job, Snoop. You know, there is a lot of hemp there,” referring to his previous arrests for drug use.

A tourist website called visitbogata.com quickly popped up, describing the village of 2,000 as the “best place for chillin’ in Romania.”

The woman behind the site, Silvia Marinescu, said: “We just wanted to show that if you check into a place in Romania, even by mistake, for sure you can find something special there. Bogata is one of the many wonderful places here.”

Bogata mayor Laszlo Barta said: “It was a mistake but it’s a good advert for us.”

But anyone thinking of visiting the village any time soon should bring a sleeping bag, because there are not any hotels.

One 61-year-old resident told local media: “I don’t know how this singer – whoever is he – could make such a mistake. Bogota is one thing, Bogata something different.” SkyNews
