Although purists probably hate this kind of tourism, especially in still unspoiled countries like Laos, I like it a lot. Not in the least because it doesn't affect the thing that really matters: nature. Besides, after a hard day of biking, kayaking or tubing (great!) it's, even when you're just like me not a tv addict, always nice to enjoy your well earned fries, hamburgers and fruitshakes and meet some 'Friends' in a trendy bar that's crowded with the hip and the tatooed...
I stayed one night in a guesthouse (200 B.) somewhere in a sandy sidestreet. Not good, not bad. Okay, okay... there was moist in the bathroom and we slept under a towel, so bad enough to move the next day to what is pobabely the best place in town: Elephant Crossings. Expensive (USD30) but great, especially the view!
