    I'll cut to the chase: I got drunk and I lost my camera! :(

    However, I'm going toVientiane tomorrow morning, is there a decent choice of electronics shops? Or a 'main' mall or something like that to go to, because I'd like to get a replacement as soon as possible. I'm guessing it's not going to be like the choice I'd have in Bangkok, but it'll have to do.

    Thanks in advance,
    Bails

    I would suggest 2 places.
    1) In The Morning Market Mall, on the ground floor, just before you get to all the phone shops, there is a place that has a good variety of cameras, genuine, not fake. As you walk to the phone shops, it is on the right hand side.
    2) K Plaza in Dong Palan is a very large electrical goods shop. They also sell cameras.

    Near the Namphou (fountain) at the bottom of Pankham road look for the bright green Fuji place next door to Phimphone market. Good selection of digital cameras in there with decent pocketsize starting around 1million kip.

    Thanks guys, I ended up going to one just on the other side of Lane Xan from K Plaza, wasn't any cheaper than it would have been at home, but K Plaza was the same, the market didn't have any of the ones I wanted and the Fujifilm place was shut.

    Cheers,
