The long-running Riverview is one of the best options if you want to be next to the river and in the middle of the action.

Photo of Chiang Khan Riverview Guesthouse
Set in a fine example of Chiang Khan’s wooden heritage houses, all of the spacious rooms come with air-con (in addition to fans), soft beds, hardwood floors, high ceilings and several swing-open glass windows that afford at least a partial view of the Mekong. Both of the rooms we checked out appeared to be well kept. The cheaper rooms rely on shared hot-water bathrooms situated close by on the same floor, while the pricier editions bag you a private bathroom, TV and small balcony perched over the riverside promenade. Both offer competitive value compared to the many similar options on Chai Khong, and we were told that prices stay the same over the weekends. The woman in charge is very welcoming, and a legendary Thai massage shop is directly across the street. Though more rundown, neighbouring Chiang Khan Guesthouse should also do the trick for backpackers.
