Where to stay in Chiang Khan

Dozens of trendy guesthouses have flooded into Chiang Khan in recent years, with most clustered along the river on Chai Khong Road. You can save cash by staying a little further away from the river. Travellers with their own transport might head a couple of kilometres north of town to scenic Khaeng Khut Khu.


Chiang Khan: Chai Khong Road

We’ve done our best to sift out a few of the quality places to stay from among the dozens of choices that have sprung up along the river.

277 Chai Khong Rd (opposite Soi 19), Chiang Khan
600B to 1,500B
Chiang Khan Riverview Guesthouse
Flashpacker - 600B to 1,500B
277 Chai Khong Rd (opposite Soi 19), Chiang Khan
T: (080) 741 8055

The long-running Riverview is one of the best options if you want to be next to the river and in the middle of the action. Set in a fine example of Chiang Khan’s wooden heritage houses, all of the spacious rooms come with air-con (in addition to fans), soft beds, hardwood floors, high ceilings and several swing-open glass windows that afford at least a partial view of the Mekong. Both of the... Read our full review of Chiang Khan Riverview Guesthouse.

243/3 Chai Khong Rd, Chiang Khan

Suk Somboon Hotel
Flashpacker - 600B to 1,500B
243/3 Chai Khong Rd, Chiang Khan
T: (042) 821 064

One of the largest hotels on Chai Khong Road, Suk Somboon occupies an airy wooden building with an expansive ground-floor restaurant and open-air hallways leading to a range of different rooms on the second floor. All rooms come with polished wood floors and walls, high ceilings, generous windows with river views, firm beds, tiny TVs, fridges, desks and air-con. A few different sizes are...

187/1 Chai Khong Rd, Chiang Khan

Suneta Hostel
Flashpacker - 600B to 1,500B
187/1 Chai Khong Rd, Chiang Khan
T: (086) 999 9218

Now with a sister property in Bangkok that’s popular with foreign backpackers, the original Suneta is more of a boutique flashpacker guesthouse than a hostel. You won’t find the pod dorms like they have down in Bangkok; in fact, you won’t find dorms at all. What you will find is a small selection of clean and spacious rooms with intentionally rustic wood walls and exposed bricks in a large and... Read our full review of Suneta Hostel.

Chiang Khan: Away from the river

You can save significant cash on quality rooms if you don’t mind a five- to 10-minute stroll from Chai Khong and the river.


94 Soi 4 (south of Sri Chiang Khan Rd and west of Route 211), Chiang Khan
600B to 1,500B
Chiang Khan Green View Resort
Flashpacker - 600B to 1,500B
94 Soi 4 (south of Sri Chiang Khan Rd and west of Route 211), Chiang Khan
T: (081) 749 8355

When we pulled up to this tiny, hidden-away resort on a drizzly Sunday morning, we found the elderly owners sitting peacefully and wearing Isaan farmer’s hats and smiles. If you don’t mind being a bit removed from the river, they offer some of the best budget accommodation in town. The immaculate standard room that we stayed in exceeded expectations thanks to an extra-large hot water bathroom... Read our full review of Chiang Khan Green View Resort.

101 Sri Chiang Khan Rd, Chiang Khan
Under 600B
Ban Hao B&B
Backpacker - Under 600B
101 Sri Chiang Khan Rd, Chiang Khan
T: (042) 821 525

An easy walk from Chai Khong Road and Wat Sri Khun Mueang, Ban Hao is an old-fashioned Thai guesthouse offering warm hospitality and thoughtfully kept rooms. After passing through a ground-floor common area that feels more like a local family’s living room, a staircase takes you up to a handful of guestrooms that are all slightly different from the next. Additional rooms are located in a separate... Read our full review of Ban Hao B&B.

Chiang Khan: Khaeng Khut Khu

Two km east of downtown, Khaeng Khut Khu is home to a great local food market along with Chiang Khan’s original resort, which still affords some of the best views in town.


28/2 Moo 4 (at Khaeng Khut Khu), Chiang Khan
600B to 1,500B
Chiang Khan Hill Resort
Flashpacker - 600B to 1,500B
28/2 Moo 4 (at Khaeng Khut Khu), Chiang Khan
T: (086) 226 3331

It’s easy to see why Chiang Khan’s original resort chose to build on this spot. Rimmed by mountains in all directions, the Mekong widens and bulges southwards, creating the feeling of standing next to a lake rather than a river. There’s no doubt the place has seen better days, most obviously evidenced by the small and rather sad swimming pool next to a playground in the centre of the property....
