Riverfront bungalows are a staple in Laos and Sailomyen fulfils this need in Tad Lo.

Photo of Sailomyen Guesthouse
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.
