Fantastic riverside bungalows

What we say: 4 stars

A series of bamboo bungalows perched on the edge of the Mekong is what you get at Mekong Riverside Lodge. The basic huts are sturdy, come with soft beds made with crisp white linen, dimly lit hot-water bathrooms and best of all, magnificent balconies on which to observe the comings and goings on the river and at the pier. For those stopping in town for just one night, this place maybe isn't worth staying just for the view because you'll probably miss the best part, which is sunset: the river glows as the slow boats arrive with people and cargo and there is a flurry of activity. In the morning at about 06:30 elephants are bathed immediately across the river making for a special sight. The only niggle here is that the bathroom is a Lao-style wet room -- no separate shower, which it should have at this price. And bamboo doesn't provide any insulation – you'll definitely learn this first hand in the cold months. Room rate includes breakfast.
