Once Upon A Time

Guesthouse in Khong Jiam

Billing itself as an 'edu-stay', 'gah·lá krang neung' arts centre has four simple rooms in an old wooden house, though you don't need to partake in its classes and activities to stay here. The old-timey decor lends a grandma's house feel to the rooms and there's a cool 2nd-floor lounge in the front. The food is good too.

It's on the main street in the centre of town, but the Mekong is just a block away.
