It has been a while since the last review but this is little changed from earlier descriptions. We discovered the event by asking at the tourist information centre on Lane Xang Avenue, and found our own way there one evening. The dance performance was very enjoyable, with a variety of costumes and dance styles, a solo player of a traditional Lao pipe instrument, and a clever 'birdsong' imitator. The live music was supplemented by recorded material, which seemed less authentic. The meal was served on a large tray at the same time as the performance, which made it a little difficult to appreciate both, especially if one also wanted to take photos. We were probably the only western visitors amongst about 100. The evening was marred a little by the 10 minutes late of a large tour group, who then left before the end. The event was certainly not as serious as the performance we had seen in Luang Prabang, and I have to admit to being willing to join some of the dancers on stage at the end, Overall it was an enjoyable experience, and good value at 120k kip (under £10) per person.
