There’s no shortage of cheap bungalows on Don Dhet and we endeavoured to find a few recommendable joints, ones that wouldn’t blow down if you sneezed or make you question why it cost 30,000 kip—Sengthavan 1 is such a place.

Their 30,000 kip bungalow on the river has three rooms to one building, constructed of wooden planks. The balcony with hammock is great, and we give points for cheering up the bare basic room with seafoam blue paint. It comes with a bed, fan, mosquito net, a light and a waste basket. The shared bathroom has a cold water shower and squat toilet.

Spending 10,000 kip more gets a room in the newer block with private bathroom. Though it’s not river front, a lawn separates the bungalow and your hammock from the water. No cheerful blue hues inside, just natural bamboo thatch covering the walls, a bed with a headboard that doubles as a shelf and cold water bathroom with western toilet.

Overall this is nothing to write home about, yet this joint is sturdier than many and the 750 m walk from the boat landing means you’re in a less busy area.
