Where should we splurge treat ourselves to nicer accomodations - thailand, vietnam or laos?
30th October, 2007
We are traveling to Chiang Mai, Bangkok, Luang Prabang, Vang Vieng, Hanoi, Hoi An, and Ho Chi Minh City in June.
While we plan to travel on a backpackers budget, for one of the locations we would like to splurge a bit on accomodations. I'm not necessarily asking for a reccomendation on the best, most ritziest place we can stay, but more looking for a place that will wow us but also not break the bank.

Hi, I dont think your question is very clear. Where are you looking for a hotel and what is your budget?

I can only speak for Vietnam, as my trip to Thai/Laos is still in the planning stage. In Viet, I stayed mainly in guesthouses ($9. to $16.), but in Saigon I splurged on the really nice Bich Duyen Hotel @ $25. in the Pham Ngu Lao, and in Hanoi at the really super Gia Thinh Hotel @ $35. in the Old Quarter. Both hotels, while only rated at 2-3 stars, were cleaner, friendlier, nicer* than American hotels which charge $150. a night.
*both with super excellent staff and food (Gia Thinh even had new DSL computer in-room)
