Lonely Planet review
The riverside snack and drink vendors are great for sundowners. Beerlao and ice is the most common purchase but fresh tąm màak-hung (green papaya salad) and a range of grilled meats are usually on hand. Look for the friendly family of long-haired ladies who run one of these places; one who speaks English apologised to us this time for cutting her hair from calf-length to merely waist-length.
