What we say: 3.5 stars

On the main road which runs through Chiang Khong, parallel to the Mekong River, the Bamboo Riverside is a favourite among budget travellers. And rightly so, while the restaurant and sitting area are looking a little tired and overgrown at the moment, the food, particularly the Mexican food, gets rave reviews. Three standards of rooms are offered. The dormitory is the cheapest option but is only open during high season. It has the best view over the Mekong and is situated under the restaurant. Toilets are next door and the hot showers are a wee walk away. There are bungalow rooms with shared hot shower bathrooms and also bungalows with private hot shower bathrooms. The rooms are small, a little dark and a bit musty but clean. Rooms all have bottom sheets, mosquito nets and fans. The main reason to stay here is the restaurant, which serves amazing homemade wholewheat bread, tortillas and other tourist fare. Prices are reasonable, the views over the Mekong are great and the boards covered in information give plenty of reading while you wait for your meal to arrive.
