Champa Lao Bungalows

Top choice in Vang Vieng

With new Thai owners, this stilted Lao house has basic fan rooms with mozzie nets. The garden, choked with plants, is a delight and you can swing on a hammock while taking in the sunset and karst from its aerial balcony. There are also bungalows down by the river bank.

Opposite is an airy five-bedroom house that sleeps up to 9 people in a group (US$100).
