Hidden oasis

What we say: 4.5 stars

Khoum Xieng Thong Guesthouse is a pleasant surprise. Located on a lane beside Wat Xieng Thong, it looks like nothing special from the outside and if you were walking past you’d probably dismiss it as a cheap place. But pop your head around the front building and you’ll enter a tree-filled garden with a guest or two looking totally relaxed reading a book. There are different categories of room and the size and quality matches accordingly. The two basic fan-only rooms in a lesser bungalow at the front of the property are available for 80,000 kip but excludes bikes. Some rooms have tile floor, others have old but sturdy hardwood floors. All get natural light. Effort has been made with the furnishings and accents making this a step up from your typical backpacker guesthouse. Rooms have WiFi and guests are allowed to use the bikes for free. Room three and six at the end of the building are absolutely enormous, with high ceilings, big windows that let in tons of light, four poster bed, white linens, wardrobe and enough space to do some cartwheels. It's a top spot hidden from the masses. Be warned though: if you’re a light sleeper, you will get a wake-up call at dawn from Wat Xieng Thong’s drums.
