I went to LP last Christmas and met this guy name " Tieng " who runs the Bountieng Guesthouse, he was very friendly and funny too. This Christmas, I wanna go there again but by myself, so it might be great to have a friend there. If anybody's got his contact please share. It's the place I'd recommend to stay if u got small budget and need some new friends, very friendly. The guesthouse is opposite Mekong river.
