Xieng Kok Resort
Wooden bungalows overlooking the Mekong
When exiting the boat ramp, head left. T: (030) 511 0696
This place is just slightly better than Khemkhong because it's a little brighter.
The bungalows are rustic and a bit rickety, but they are physically separate from one another so you get some privacy. Each of the rooms has terrific views up and down the Mekong. You have a front porch from which to view the magnificent sunset and some of the bungalows have chairs (or you can grab them from one that does). The beds are basic, come with mosquito nets and should be fine for a night. There’s an attached bathroom where you’ll enjoy your bucket shower. While the Chinese owner speaks no English and no Lao, his Mandarin is certainly superb, so communication may well be in charades.
