We soon got into the backpacker mood managing two successive 10 hour night buses, and one night we stayed in a 2USD room.!!! We didnt hang around in Vientiane for long, opting instead to spend a couple of nights in Pakxe. Pakxe is a small town, where we hired motorbikes and explored the local waterfalls. We also did a day trip to the 4,000 islands - a set of inhabited isalnds on the Mekong River.
