What we appreciate about beachfront Lien Hiep Thanh is that there is something for every budget, including backpackers who may want to consider stretching their wallet for the convenience of staying right on Long Beach and in the section with many of the eateries.
Lien Hiep Thanh’s bricks and mortar bungalows are staggered down a stepped terrace running down to the beach.

More effort has been put into the bungalows closer to the beach. Not surprisingly, these are the more expensive category and they’ve been done up with a decent amount of furniture, WiFi, air-con and sturdy deck chairs on all the porches. It’s by no means luxurious and given the high season rate, it’d be hard not to think it was overpriced. Rooms at the rear are shaded by the garden and are basic, fan-only and much cheaper. It’s not a great budget choice but it’s not a bad one either. Budget beachfront accommodation on Long Beach is an increasingly rare find.
