We intended on going to Vang Vieng for a few days, but got sucked in by the tubing culture (we are three 22yo backpackers) and ended up staying for over 2weeks!
This was helped no end by the ever friendly owner of Phonsaksit. We were paying a few pounds a day to stay in a 3man air con room.
One night they had a family/office party and invited us and they refused to accept any money/alcohol from us! Had a great time and they really immersed us in the Laos culture.
Only downside is that the maid wouldn't clean our room in the afternoon and so had to change our sheets ourselves (was impossible for us to wake up before noon)
Much British love
