    ermmm doubt they would remember me as I never had breakfast there. Actually they would remember me as I had about 3 large boxes plus some tree sculptures I had to take up and down the stairs on top of my luggage.

    $16 a night. I think it included breakfast.
    News is what someone, somewhere is trying to suppress - everything else is just advertising.

    Here you go PP,

    This bloke should remember me as I took a pic of him changing the light bulb with a pair of pliers whist standing on a chair which was balanced on another chair.

    Its about 2, max 3 kms from there. I stayed at Phetmanyxay just down the road from the bus station, jumped in a tuk tuk and not knowing how far it was paid something like 60 baht. I walked it after that, only 10 or 15 mins.

    ^Okay, cheers for that, I'm getting the bus up from Bangkok later this evening, should hit the embassy about 10 am tomorrow and then have to look for a place to stay overnight, phoned the place MTD stayed in that was in another thread but they are full, will take a look at some of the places mentioned here.

    BTW should I get some USD in Bangkok before going or can I get by on Baht? Maybe more expensive using Baht?

    Plenty of internet cafes in Vientiane, also by the Mekong River your Thai mobile phone will work ok.
