Fresh and professional
All renewed and nicely presented, DP Guesthouse is the most modern-looking guesthouse in town – and the opening rates are excellent value.
It’s located in the first white building you see on your left as you climb up the road from the pier. This once stock-standard guesthouse was tweaked and reopened in December 2014 with a glossy new finish and abbreviated name (it was formerly Duangpasert Guesthouse). Everything has been given a new paint job or a polish. The clean rooms have new laminate flooring, the hot-water showers have shower curtains and a bedside table even doubles as a small desk. The comfortable beds have new linens. Because it’s owned and operated by Shompoo Cruise, the reception speaks English and is more professional than most in town. A February 2015-opened adjacent flashpackery restaurant serves Western fare.

Cindy Fan is a Canadian writer/photographer and author of So Many Miles, a website that chronicles the love of adventure, food and culture. After falling in love with sticky rice and Mekong sunsets, in 2011 she uprooted her life in Toronto to live la vida Laos. She’s travelled to over 40 countries and harbours a deep affection for Africa and Southeast Asia. In between jaunts around the world, she calls Laos and Vietnam home where you’ll find her traipsing through rice paddies, standing beside broken-down buses and in villages laughing with the locals.
