Across the other side of the wooden bridge, Muang Khua T: (020) 5588 0058
This wonderful wooden building across the Nam Phak boasts river views and is located in a peaceful village just 10 minutes' walk from the centre of Muang Khua.
The English-speaking owner often heads down to the boat dock to meet passengers as they arrive from Vietnam to offer them a cheap room and some fantastic home-cooked food. The beds here are hard as rock, but do come with a mosquito net. The cold water private bathrooms have Western toilets and the general feel of the place is pleasant. The owner will often invite guests to eat dinner with the family and when a large enough group is staying will offer a cheap banquet complete with lao-lao, tea and water. A top spot with a small village feel.
