    Hi, I'm based in Vientiane for the next few months volunteering and want to find some new friends while I'm here! I'm a 25yo Aussie girl who is looking for people interested in having some drinks, sampling the lao cuisine or maybe taking a yoga class together. Reply or drop me a line if you're interested! :)

    Joma Bakery near the Nam Phou fountain (tables out front) for breakfast is a good place to meet other travellers/expats. Next door the Phimphone market has a message board for buy/sell/rent info and expat groups. Get Hobo maps at Monument Books a couple blocks from there (good source for browsing and sweet aircon).

    Hey - will be in Vientiane from 2-6 May. We have some Laos friends we will be meeting up with who live in Vientiane. Drop me a PM if you're about - you're welcome to join up with us as we'll be out and about most nights.

    Hey MJ, that sounds great! You just need to enable private messages on your profile so we can message each other outside of this board :)
    If anybody else wants to join in, let us know!

    hey! i'm in a similar boat. 24 year old aussie, here for the next few months. PM me and we can organise a coffee or a drink. The only other expats i've met are the creepy older sort...
