Anyone been to Laos in the past 6 months? I've read about some highway robberies and some violence. Is it truth or hype?

I'm in Thailand now. I have previously been to Laos, and have spoken to others who have just been there. Most people love the slow, laid-back pace. If there are any domestic problems, it shouldn't affect tourists. Most people go to Luang Prabang & Veng Vieng

Some or my female friends even traveled in Laos by themselves. Each of them came back in one piece with wonderful memory and pictures. I, myself, am thinking about going there alone too. Never appeared to me that I have to worried about crime in Laos. Beside, I read from a few travel notes that a lot of people traveled alone to Laos, and they made friends from there, especially in Luang Prabang.
