After we spent one week in Bangkok enjoying all the excitements that this big city has to offer we really were longing for a more quiet and idyllic place .... and finally we ended up in Ban Pako. What a revelation, what a retreat! Phantastic location, quiet and authentic, very good Lao food, friendly people... we enjoyed relaxing in the bamboo hammock, swimming in the river, meeting the locals and other guests, having an outdoor massage...and there are more things to do that you should be able to find out yourself. Most impressive the quietness of the jungle and the Southern sky full of stars. Just Breathtaking. We planned to stay three days but then we stayed five. We really hope and wish that Ban Pako stays as it is and never becomes a place for Blockbuster tourists. Dear Chris, Somkit and the whole Ban-Pako-Team, thanks so much indeed for making our stay unforgetable. We wish you all the best for your future plans to pimp our Ban Pako and make it even nicer. But please stay simple. Promised?
Thanks again and fond regards,
Karla and Heike from Berlin/Germany
