Have you found anything for NYE yet? Think we may be there around that time as well!

Dont expect too much, since officially all tourists have to bee in their guesthouse by 12 at night. Even the bars close at 12.

But of course, if you can go to some "underground" places they serve you all night long. My girlfriend got an address of a bar like that, but on the other hand, I once ran into a control at 1 AM coming late from Utopia bar. Could turn around and went another way, but you never know ...

I don't know how strict they handle it, but I was told to be carefull.

I bet that in Vientaine you have better options for New Years Eve than in LP :-)

I was once for New Years Eve on Phu Quok in Vietnam, at 23:50 the power went out and everybody was sitting in the dark, only candles, no music. One of the best parties I ever had :-)
