Riverfront bungalows are a staple in Laos and Sailomyen fulfils this need in Tad Lo.
Rustic huts dot the riverbanks and are built on stilts with a wooden platform and bamboo thatch walls. The inside is tidy and has a sturdy bed with built in shelf, an extra side table, fan, mosquito net, an electrical outlet, light and a balcony with the requisite hammock.
It’s really this balcony you come for, along with the fall views, and not the shared cold water facilities with simple bucket shower and squat toilet. The bungalows, though a tad flimsy, are in good condition and a towel is included. No English is spoken.
You’ll find Sailomyen on the east bank. Cross the bridge, it will be on the lefthand side after Sypaseuth Guesthouse.

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.
