Mekong Estate is a few minutes tuk-tuk ride from the main city and is in a non-touristy part of the city. It is a beautiful haven from the hustle and bustle of the main town. We were lucky to have the place to ourselves on most of the 6 days we were there and the gorgeous pool was a blessing in the extreme heat, after a morning of sightseeing. We spent countless hours sitting on our balcony watching the river flowing past....having breakfast with a view of the pool and river was amazing. Why go to a riverside restaurant for this? Service was great, housekeeping was excellent, we have no complaints about the rooms/food/service. Yes, it is in the middle of a typical Lao street so you will see litter and dogs but you'll also see locals going about their daily lives, isn't that what travelling is all about?
