I was living in Vientiane for a month and was invited to go out to Dreamtime with a friend. I actually had no idea what Dreamtime was to the point that I asked if we needed to bring food and alcohol. Ha! Silly me. Like previous reviewers have stated, the food is indeed delicious. I posted a photo of the... More

Yes, I know it is really a backpacker place, but for the price, it was definitely lacking. Throughout Asia, breakfast is included in most accommodations, but not here. Because the place is so remote, we had to eat all meals on site. While quite tasty, they were relatively expensive, for being served on the ground. The accommodations are extremely sparse... More

A lovely place, a return to nature, Dreamtime was the perfect close of a SE Asia journey that was a learning experience from beginning to end. Mike is a charming host and we have remained friends since my visit there. I recommend it highly for its sheer tranquility and closeness to earth as it can still be.

What a little gem, finding a paridice at the end of a dusty trail! Greeted with a cold drink and warm wonderful smiles. Lounging in bungalos beneath the cool jungle canopy. An experience that with never be forgotten by my heart and tastebuds ummm!

We had the best nature experience staying in Dreamtime! If you love the outdoors, the stars at night, the animal and plant kingdom then this is the right place for you. Basic hut accommodation, no electricity or wifi which is part of the charm! This is the place to relax
