We did an overnight here while doing the two day journey down the Mekong from Chiang Khong to Luang Prabang. It was a wonderful two day trip highlighted by the amazing hotel in the middle. The hotel is high up on the bank above the river but it was no effort for the porters to take up (and in the morning back down) our luggage. We arrived late afternoon. The room was a little basic but excellent at the same time. we had a room with a good sized verandah. We ate a nice dinner and breakfast in the terrace that looked out over the river. in the morning before we left we had time o cross the river and have an elephant ride. If you are travelling that section of the Mekong this is a place not to be missed!!
