Stung Treng

With most travellers now trucking straight through, the accommodation scene in Stung Treng is sadly uninspired.

Mekong Bird
Backpacker - Under US$10
Thmey Village, Stung Treng (off Route 7 to Laos)
T: (012) 796 699

A rural retreat just under nine kilometres from Stung Treng town, off Route 7 on the way to Laos, Mekong Bird offers well-designed, tree-shaded wood cabins with river views, and plenty of opportunities to explore the surrounding rivers and forests. The cabins are all ensuite, some with air-con and hot-water showers, and all with decks overlooking the Mekong and comfortable mattresses on... Read our full review of Mekong Bird.

Golden River Hotel
Flashpacker - US$10 to 35
Street 2, Riverside, Stung Treng (just to the east of town)
T: (012) 980 678

The standards, as much as we were able to figure out, are all on the top (third) floor and are... Read our full review of Stung Treng Guesthouse.

Riverside Restaurant and Guesthouse
Backpacker - Under US$10
Riverside, Street 4 (behind the bus station), Stung Treng
T: (012) 257 207

Riverside Guesthouse has long been the most popular traveller guesthouse in Stung Treng, but is beginning to outlive its usefulness. Its most obvious draw is that it’s a better place to meet other travellers than other guesthouses in town, but aside from that, the rooms are only barely clean, and it’s hard to justify a bucket shower when you can have proper hot water showers a few doors down,...
