Hope thoses info gonna help some of you
If you really want to know about the contry and see authentic towns and villages i suggest to go in the North. It's a little bit cold, but the landscae is really nice.
Luang Prabang and Vang Vieng it's not really Laos, for me, it was to touristic.
A lot of travellers only go in thoses towns and they had a bad opinion about the entire contry and the people...how can you judge a contry when you only go in touristics places... ??
