DO NOT EVER STAY HERE!!!
I am an experiened traveller, and know that you should separate your cash into several hidey holes to avoid large amounts of money being taken. One of these spots was my wallet.
Without thinking, on the morning (26th) I went kayaking and tubing, I only took my bum bag type thing with me. I put my wallet in my hiking pack (assuming it would be safe)
I checked into the Easy Go on the 25th of Jan 2014.
I had counted the money in my wallet the on the morning of the 25th (in Luang Prabang). I had $16 australian dollars, $100 US dollars and 1500 Thai Baht in there.
This morning, unfortunately, I had to pack quickly and absentmindedly didnt check my wallet. I had a weird feeling all day, and checked it as soon as I arrived in Vientiane!
ALL OF IT WAS GONE.
As I am in laos, I have no use for these currencies, and would not have spent it!!!
The horrible thing is, that on the 26th of Jan our towels, bins - nothing was changed or cleaned in our room! so someone went in there to, what? steal?
I am disgusted by this!!!! I want everyone to know - because that is a lot of money! but regardless of the amount, it's the principle and the fact that we obviously werent safe in our own room!!!

There is so much to do In Vang Vieng, whether its going tubing, visiting one of the caves or lagoons, driving motorbikes to waterfalls or just chilling by the river and that's all without talking about the great nightlife on offer!
