At $15 a room with free wifi, computers and tea and coffee plus the lovely, very friendly and helpful couple that run it, this is a great guesthouse. It location is perfect, everything is within walking distance, and it's situated down a narrow alley buzzing with stalls and Vietnamese women cooking on the street! I love it! I have not give it 5 stars as our room is a little noisy as its above reception but not really much to complain about!

... in 2005 and is the longest dry cave in the world. Once off the bikes we walked the 500 steps to the top of one of the mountains- it was quite exhausting but well worth it! We walked down some slippery steps into a massive cavern lit up in places. Venturing further in, the sheer scale of the cave became apparent- it just kept on going deeper and deeper, by far the biggest cave either of us had ever seen.
... unfortunately don't have that kind of cash. I think it would be a bit spooky down there for 7 days without sunlight. On the way home everyone was very sleepy and heads were falling upon other people's shoulders. We made it back for about 5pm.

Lauren and Noel ...
... the water was freezing!! As we turned our head torches on and swam into the cave. Our tour guide told us to take our life *********** and leave them on the side and we continued to climb further into the cave, through small gaps and over rocks, the further we went into the cave we could feel the clay beneath our feet and around us, before we knew it we were in what had to be the coolest mud bath, mud slides and pools everywhere. We were all slipping ...
... inflated tyres to float back down the river. As exciting as this prospect appeared, the reality was that the river was barely moving beyond walking pace and was invariably so shallow as to continually cause us to 'beach' our tubes. Indeed, the last part of the journey involved us not so much drifting effortlessly down the river as furiously paddling through decidedly muddy terrain. At one point, not long after we had shaken off the young locals who attempted to hijack our tubes, I ...
... street/in the front yard/in the backyard especially, I freak out. I can’t help it. I’ve never seen so many animals in my life. Today we were surprised with baby chicks being born! My landlord peeked his head in the kitchen to show me, because he knows how I am, and I was SO excited. I immediately stopped what I was doing—making eggs… [this just got awkward]... and grabbed my camera (translation: iPhone) and ran ...
