Lazy days in Nong Khiaw

Nong Khiaw is a stunning small town nestled between towering karst mountains on the banks of the Nam Ou. Sitting on our riverside deck for hours a day, we watched leaves flutter down in the breeze, long painted boats motor past the village, and time float by.

The view west from our deck.
There was constant activity across the river, as people fished, maneuvered boats, chatted, and came down in the early evening to bathe.
A bike ride east of town brought stunning mountain views and choruses of “sabadee!’ from children who ran out to say hello.

If you ever find yourself in Nong Khiaw, we highly recommend the riverside rooms at Sunset Guest House. The views are unbeatable!
