TravelPod Member ReviewsVilla Champa Luang Prabang
We arrived at Villa Champa not having booked it after a long two day slow boat from Thailand. We got a really decent price for what it was one of the best rooms we had in our 2 month trip. After a few days roughing it up a bit, it felt very luxurious. The young man at reception was friendly and sweet and the nice big shower felt amazing; no wet bathrooms, aleluia!
The location is great, close to everything in the centre of town and we even got a nice balcony which we should have used more. Breakfast was not included but there are some great places in Luang Prabang (not that cheap though!).
Would recommend Villa Champa to any flashpackers arriving in Luang Prabang!

As with the trip up from Viang Vieng, the journey to Luang Prabang was equally breathtaking – we stopped for lunch at the village at the junction with Routes 1 and 7 again and continued our way north in the afternoon, arriving at about 3 pm. We got dropped off at a small bus station outside the town itself and took a tuk tuk to the town where …
... To get to the restaurant, we would need to cross the dry season bamboo bridge, which is an experience in itself. There is a troll to charge you to cross the bridge, I say troll but it was actually a few small ladies in a little hut! 10,000 kip each to get across to the otherside of the river, the money being used to rebuild the bridge next dry season after the monsoon's.
Some steep makeshift wooden steps take you down to the bridge, the rest of the bridge being made ...
... Si. We climbed the 300+ steps to the top, because why not. At the top is a 75 foot gilded spire. The views of the surrounding area were impressive, to say the least. We are nearly 1000 feet above sea level (it feels good to be at altitude again, even if just a little). The are soaring peaks and deep valleys stretching out in every direction; the two large rivers cutting deep gorges as they flow. Lunch is pretty basic, similarly to Thai cooking. The rice is sticky. It's always fun to ...
Awakening for a glorious nights sleep, with my mind protected from the gifts from Baci Ceremony and my body and spirit rejuvenated from my healing and Laos Poultice massage, I realized that I actually slept until 6:20! One of my few complaints of being in my mid-fifties is the lack of a goodnights. It is such a luxury to get up fully rejuvenated and ready to go. I proceeded to get ready for my day, then headed to restaurant to get some chow. Looking at the ...
... There are a myriad of temples and also many monks dressed in orange with yellow belts in the city. Mekong river runs through on one side and a smaller river in parallel on the other side of the city, creating a peninsula where most hotels are present. We decided for a small hotel on the riverbank with the more tiny river as a view. It was just great with a balcony where we could sit and watch the daily river life with the obligatory Beer Lao. This ...
