Nong Khiaw
by Laura of about 4 years ago

Although small, Nong Khiaw offers a respite for travel weary backpackers. It's an oasis that offers breath taking views over looking the Nam Ou River. Book a guest house with river views and spend your days hammocking on the balcony. There are a few tour companies offering fishing, cave tours, and trekking. The cave tours are awesome but be ready to have potential encounters with leeches. There are a few restaurants, one of my favorites is over the lonesome bridge down the street from Sunset Guesthouse on the left with the open front dining. They're affordable and offer great French Toast.

Nong Khiaw can be reached by songtaew or boat. It's the perfect escape from crowds and is a relaxing getaway before continuing your journey.
