LEONARDO DiCAPRIO and David Beckham are to pay separate visits to the area left devastated by last month's (DEC04) Asian tsunami, in an effort to boost morale in the region.

DiCaprio filmed his hit 2000 movie The Beach in Phuket, Thailand, which was hit hard by the catastrophic waves on 26 December (04).

Soccer player Beckham is a superstar in Asia and is planning a trip there in a bid to attract the vital tourism trade back to the area.

The Real Madrid ace is also a representative for the UNITED NATIONS CHILDREN'S FUND (Unicef).

His spokesman says, "We are open to all offers. He will help as much as he can. David has a UNICEF role and that's where his efforts will be."
