    I've not heard anything about bad flooding in Luang Prabang -- only Vientiane. For accommodation recommendations, suggest you take a look at the Luang Prabang section of the site - there's a bunch of recommendations in there...

    Tubing only in Vang Vieng to the south and perhaps Muang Ngoi further north.

    I saw some naked monks tubing on the Nam Khan, a not too difficult bicycle ride out of LP. Didn't take any pics as it didn't seem a very culturally sensitive thing to do.;-) No tourist infra-structure whatsoever though, do it at your own risk!
