... and not for singles and there are no toilets at the venue.
I am a matured aged female travelling independently. I saw this event advertised at the Tourist Office. They booked it for me.
Whilst waiting in the foyer of the hotel where the event is held I watched a couple of busloads of middle aged/mature aged European tourists enter the venue - I was the only solo person.
The seating is made up of rows of Japanese style seating - tables of 4 (not facing the stage). I was to be seated alone at one of them but decided to sit at a western/conventional table just inside the doors where I didn't have to twist my neck to look at the stage.
The food: the advert describes it as ''traditiional Lao food'' but it was hard to know what most of it was as the lighting was so dim, but I could smell meat and perhaps fish. There was no choice offered. I tried to refuse the food but the waiters either didn't understand or ?? I left it all untouched although I was rather embarrassed at the waste especially as I seem to have been served almost as much as if there were 4 people at my table.
The dance performance was sweet and at times appeared to include some classical western ballet. I am not qualified to critique this form of dancing but I sensed it was for tourists. I left during the interval but reading elsewhere that the diners are invited onto the stage kind of confirms the ''touristy'' assumption.
