Muang SIng

The number of visitors to Muang Sing has declined, and so too has the number of good places to stay. There are only a few places worth recommending but if for some bizarre reason they are all full, there are several not so great places – Muang Sing is small, you’ll find them. Most accommodation in Muang Sing is located on or just off the main road, which runs from China all the way to Burma.

Backpacker - Under US$10
8.5km along the road to China, Muang Sing

Flashpacker - US$10 to 20
On a dirt side road at the southern end of Muang Sing
T: (020) 5598 5557

The rattan bungalows at Phou Iu II Guesthouse certainly are charming and the prices are much higher than they used to be, but it’s because they’re the best guesthouse located in the centre of Muang Sing.
