New Resort in North Laos

February 13, 2008 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: ,

990 Muang La Resort

It used to be that the lack of good accommodations was the reason for many travelers to give anything North of Luang Prabang a miss while visiting land-locked Laos. Mr. Jean-Paul Duverge has seen to it that this is no longer a valid excuse. He opened the Muang La Resort, just 15-odd miles east of Udom Xai. This 6-room retreat is built along the banks of a river.  The bungalows are in traditional Lao style, and have large balconies. The restaurant, facing the river, serves Lao specialties. A Lao welcome ceremony, or Baci, can be arranged on request.

There’s a natural hotspring on the grounds, which has been put to use as a natural spa and a sauna.

Count on Khiri Travel to place a couple of nights at Muang La into a great program. Khiri Travel can take you there from Luang Prabang, and include a couple of great sights  along the way. Also, Khiri is one of the few organization that can make sure you have a seamlessly organised trip overland onwards to Dien Bien Phu in Vietnam after your stay at Muang La.

New Tented Camps in Laos with Shangri Lao

Dr Paul Neis, a well known French Indochina explorer who later became the French consul in Canton, led an expedition to the Laotian highlands in 1883. Dr Neis left Luang Prabang on 11 October in that year in two light boats going up the Nam Khan river.

He travelled up the Huay Sae (“Nam Sae”) and set up camp along the Huay Sae, a mountain stream ending in the Nam Khan River. Visitors today can now travel back in time and relive those exciting days when most of Indochina was unexplored territory for outsiders. The new journey has been made possible by German entrepreneur Markus Peschke. Markus is a long time Lao resident and the founder of Tiger Trail, the Indochina Spirit restaurant and, more recently, the Elephant Village. His new project is called Shangri Lao (www.shangri-lao.com). Shangri Lao will consist of two tented camps, one nearby the current Elephant Village, where Dr. Neis and his entourage set up camp in 1883 along the Tad Sae River and one at the Tad Huay Khot, close to Xieng Ngeung village.
