Where I stayed
The guest house was a favorite of mine, just the fact that it overlooked the Mekong made it special. Our room had a tree house/cabin like feel to it. It was up several flights of creaky tree branch stairs and was surrounded by flower, fruit trees and hanging plants. There were miscellaneous animal noises echoing around. I felt itchy right away and 'DEETED' our twin beds ASAP.
Russel did not get his steak dinner he was day dreaming about earlier, but we did have a delicious dinner (curry pork and garlic shrimp) in an outdoor restaurant lit up by lanterns along the river
Other than 1 huge spider (which I think was poisonous) sighted in our bathroom at 2 am that I battled with using the bathroom sprayer and few salamanders crawling on our ceiling and walls our night was pretty uneventful. Very nature friendly, Gosh we woke up to birds chirping a woodpecker pecking, roosters with sore throats crowing and a dog barking at 5am. Later we had baguettes with Jam and coffee for breakfast. I took some more photos of the river in the morning light and then we were on our way to cross the border and start our slow boat journey down the river.
