We have 5 places to stay in and around Sekong.
For a town that doesn’t have a big tourist draw, accommodation is surprisingly plentiful, though you won’t find many other foreigners in town. Better hotels get domestic tourists, businessmen and the NGO set. Those on a tight budget can easily drive around and look for guesthouses (sometimes with signage in Vietnamese “nga nghi”). We found a couple of grim basic joints for 50,000 kip. And yes, the Sekong Hotel is still around. Supposedly visited regularly by two Malaysians who died on the river, once upon a time we stayed here and got the creeps—or was it one too many Beerlao? Rooms are now looking long in the tooth and barking dogs greet every arrival, providing even more character to the haunting.
