Manychan Guest House & Restaurant

Guesthouse in Luang Namtha

Manychan distinguishes itself not by its patchy rooms but by the warm welcome of its eponymous owner. The restaurant has a coffee machine from Italy brewing lovely cappucinos, makes fresh bread and pastries for breakfast, and also has a new terrace for dinner (mains 30,000K). Rooms are bare-walled affairs with armoire, bathroom and hot-water shower, but little else.
