I've been in LPB over NYE and it's a fairly subdued affair, certainly compared with Vientiane. However, restaurants will be busy and you may need to book. There was an outdoor stage on the site of the daily Hmong market (near the TIC and post office) with Lao music and dancing, but there was nothing of the big-party atmosphere you usually find in larger cities.

You could try Couchsurfing.com if you are looking to meet up with fellow travellers - or even a local - although in my experience this is more popular with the under 35s and you won't find many older people using it.

You might also want to consider the Aussie Bar and Utopia, which are popular hang-outs for solo travellers.
