Lao Accommodation

Simple Muang Houn guesthouseLaos has plenty of hotels on offer for passing cyclists and standards have come a long way from the early days of tourism. Some rooms can still be musty but in general you should be able to find a clean room in relatively good shape for 50,000 kip.

It’s always possible to find something cheaper, usually around 30,000-40,000 kip, but you might be in a prison cell of a room with peeling paint and an odd smell.

In the backpacker havens of Vang Vieng, Tadlo and Don Det, it’s easy to find a bungalow for 15,000-20,000 kip. These are quite spartan, with shared bathrooms and possibly the hardest beds you’ve ever slept on, but they usually come equipped with a hammock and sometimes a water view. Bungalows usually have mosquito nets too.

Almost every bungalow or hotel will provide you with a towel and a bottle of water. Luxury extras like air conditioning and a television only tend to appear when you’re spending 80,000 kip and up for a double room.

There isn’t always the option to splurge but you can experience five-star luxury and some fine boutique hotels at reasonable prices compared with Europe or America in Vientiane and Luang Prabang. Around $30 U.S. will get you a solid three-star room with breakfast around the waterfalls of Tadlo and Tadfane in the south.

For the most part, there’s always at least one guesthouse within a day’s ride, although occasionally this means doing long distances. If you’re not confident putting in the odd day over 100km then pack a tent just in case. You could ask permission to put it up at a temple or within the grounds of a police station or school. You could take over one of the many huts in rice fields in rural Lao for a night.

    I do enjoy the manner in which you have presented this particular issue plus it really does offer me a lot of fodder for consideration. On the other hand, because of everything that I have personally seen, I really hope as the commentary stack on that men and women stay on issue and not get started upon a soap box of some other news of the day. All the same, thank you for this outstanding point and though I do not really concur with the idea in totality, I respect your standpoint.

    |If you are dealing with a problem with frizzy hair, never rub it with a towel after washing it. It will damage and frizz out your hair. Instead, you should wrap it and push the towel to eliminate the moisture. When you are happy, brush and comb your hair.
