Follow the river road across to the western end of town, eventually a large sign heralds Vangxang Savanh Hotel.

The size and scope (hotel, restaurant, banquet room) seems overly ambitious for a town like Sekong. Nevertheless, they offer cheap fan guesthouse type rooms in a building block and air-con rooms, three per individual cottage. The air-con rooms of course are the best rooms and are fine for a night.

The hotel is usually very quiet and so the room we inspected did feel like it needed to be aired out, having not been used in a while. It contained a few bits of furniture, a mini fridge, small box TV, windows and an electric outlet near the bed. It’s a stock standard wetroom bathroom with electric heated shower. We also noted an Internet router outside the door.

While it does have a riverside location, the big drawback is that it’s at the western edge of town. No distance is big in Sekong, especially since most will be travelling with their own motorbike or bicycle, but it may feel awkward for someone travelling solo, especially a woman. The sprawling compound will likely be empty. It doesn’t have a gate and it is adjacent to the ramp down to the ferry. It just feels less secure than having a room inside a building like at Hongkham or Hounepathay Hotel.

We prefer Hongkham and Hounepathay. For someone fine with the location and lying low, both Vangxang Savanah and Hounephathay Hotel have a restaurant terrace to relax, write postcards and watch the occasional boat cross the river.
