    Hi

    I´m roughing out my third trip to SE Asia, first time to Laos at the moment. I´m planning to be there during february 2010. I read the Lao people celebrate the Chinese New Year around that time and I´m curious what to expect. Has anyone been to places like Vientiane or LP during that time? Is it a problem in finding accomodation which aren´t overpriced?

    Thanks in advance...
    Andreas

    No, it is very low key.
