        If you’ve travelled this far into Lao you’ll have experienced some ‘wacky’ accommodation options, so by comparison the Chitavanh will seem relatively normal. The hotel is one of the better choices in Sam Neua and rooms have all the standard ‘flash packer’ features – A/C,...More

        Hi David: Xam Neua is quite a way from Luang Prabang, and you would struggle to drive it in one day. Hiring a vehicle and driver in Laos is always possible, you just have to fix a price. Not sure if a driver would do a hire... More
