Great value, top budget pick
Centre of town, across from BCEL bank branch, Vang Vieng T: (020) 5985 1803
It was all smiles when we visited Dokboua Guesthouse.
Centrally located, Dokboua is run by a lovely, friendly family keen on ensuring budget travellers have a comfortable stay and it’s no wonder they have remained popular for many years. This feeling is refreshing in Vang Vieng, as many locals have become so jaded by the tourist masses. The concrete guesthouse has three levels of rooms. The cheapest fan rooms on the ground floor are simply furnished, are a bit dark and gloomy but clean and fine for a night's rest. More appealing and costing only a little bit more are the rooms on the higher levels with full length windows that open on to the shared balcony. Bright and airy, they also have distant views of the mountains that make Vang Vieng so popular. All rooms have clean attached bathrooms with Western toilets and hot showers. Prices here are some of the cheapest in town for a private room and rooms at Dokboua are far superior to Nana Guesthouse or Pan’s Place.
