Muang Khua

Muang Khua has a handful of guesthouses that budget travellers will find suitable. The town is so small that any location is walking distance to the boat landing or main road 2E.

On road to the boat station, Ban Phosai Tai, Muang Khua

Near the top of the road from the boat landing, Chaleunsouk is a modern guesthouse with comfortable, flashier rooms in a new building, or cheaper rooms in the original building. The pricier rooms are the best in Muang Khua, even better than Sernnali Hotel and at half the price. Feeling more like a budget hotel rather than a guesthouse, the brightly lit rooms boast white walls, flatscreen TV,... Read our full review of Chaleunsouk Guesthouse.

Of all the businesses we stepped into in Muang Khua, Manchay was the only place to greet us with a smile.

You’d think a transit hub town on two beautiful rivers would have plenty of accommodation featuring bungalows and hammocks on the water. Unfortunately not in Muang Khua. Manotham Guesthouse is the closest thing to it with a wooden building on the banks of the Nam Phak river, accessible by crossing the pedestrian suspension bridge. The building is made of wooden boards stained dark and it... Read our full review of Manotham Guesthouse.

At a glance, Sernnali Hotel would be considered Muang Khua’s “nicest” accommodation since it is the most hotel-like place in the town with a big building, a big lobby and big hallways. Rooms are fine but vastly overpriced and are not good value. Rooms are glorified guesthouse rooms, while the extras come in the form of flatscreen TV, a vanity, WiFi, high ceilings and air-con, and the... Read our full review of Sernnali Hotel.
