Just off Route 12 to the north of town is Mahaxay Mai Guesthouse.
It's the perfect location for those who started the loop in Tha Khaek after about 09:30, chose to visit every single activity on their way along Route 12, or have plans to undertake the extended loop. The guesthouse is home to a series of wooden bungalows each with a fan, TV, large bed with old sheets, cold water bathroom with Western toilet and a lousy mirror. The bungalows are quite ideal for travellers on the loop, are fairly clean and an attached restaurant can rustle up a decent fried rice and a good selection of drinks. This is a good resting point for those who are in no rush to push on.
