Pathoumphone Guesthouse is away from the epicentre of Luang Prabang’s tourist strip, on a peaceful riverside street, lined with cafés and wicker chairs. We had a bright room and kittens for company. The Art House Café, a few doors down, with its bottomless coffee and excellent value Western food, was the perfect writers’ spot – when the WIFI didn’t distract us.

Cost: 60,000 kip for a double room with fan and separate bathroom.

Finding it: On Thanon Kingkitsarat, across from the Nam Khan River. (See map below.)
