Gommer, I don't think there have safety issues on the LP to VTE road for several years now. You should be confident that it will be fine. Well, except for the twisty windy roads taken at speed that seems to rumble many peoples stomachs :-)

There are certainly a few ATMs in Vientiane - but I'm not sure I'd feel 100% confident elsewhere (I don't recall seeing one in LP that worked).

Kip (also my name - makes for amusement in Laos); Thai Bhat and $US are also often accepted.

Cheers, --Kip
