Expat websites for Laos
Just curious if there's an active ex-pat discussions board for people living in Laos by any chance?

There are some but they are all pretty hopeless. You are better off asking questions of those of us who live there. Mac is close, I live in Vientiane, Bob is somewhere in Thailand.
These are some sites
Also try TeakDoor
http://falanginlaos.com/index.html is ok if you want to buy/sell stuff.

There's also a good board for buying and selling stuff, learning Lao, finding staff & services etc at www.findinlaos.com

Thanks a lot Barnes!
Found this: http://www.immo-laos.webs.com/hr200-900.html through your link and some of the homes look downright luxurious.
Unfortunately, they're all for Vientiane. Is there just not that much stock of rental houses available in Luang Prabang?

By the way, I just happened to look at a link to the Rivertime Ecolodge and it looks quite charming.
We are a couple with a 3 year old child and intending to visit Luang Prabang.
However, we most definitely enjoy beautiful, peaceful, nature-filled settings where we can get a local experience in a private lodge/villa.
Unfortunately, I have to work US hours via Internet and telephone (voice over IP). Is it possible to get a high-quality, reliable Skype call connection to the US from Rivertime (typically from 10pm - midnight and 6am to 10am)?

Well, that's the last time I will ever post any information for you.

LOL. Sorry, thank you for the links as well.
