We spent 7 nights at the Luang Prabang Thongbay guesthouse during our wonderful family trip in Thailand and Laos. Thongbay is more than a guesthouse: being a hotel with a beautiful garden and thatched wooden bungalows, it is an oasis of kindness and relax in a romantic and quiet location along the Nam Khan river.We were in two different bungalows facing the river before and after our trip to Pakse, the first time in a pretty bungalow with one extra bed and one mattress for our younger child, and the second time although we did not book in advance, the staff was able to arrange for us an even prettier family bungalow with four beds. In both cases the bathroom was spacious and comfortable, and the terrace facing the river relaxing and quiet.The staff at Thongbay is the best you can imagine. With them, you feel like at home, the breakfast (à la carte) can be booked (including time) on a whiteboard at the reception the evening before, and it is served on the terrace by the nice ladies of the guesthouse.The staff is lovely with children - and with the parents as well! There is a regular free shuttle service to downtown and back, but a 20-minute walk on a secondary road easily bring you on foot downtown and back. We took this shortcut several times with a torch and we had no problems, even with children and stroller. Once a week the staff offers a trip at dawn to attend the ceremony of food offering for the monks. The Thongbay family has an own carpet close to the temple, and prepare sticky rice for the monks as all inhabitants of Luang Prabang. We will never forget Thongbay - never will our children. The guesthouse is held by a swiss-lao couple (not in Laos at the time of our visit) and the staff speaks good english. Keo, Vanh, Net, Thy and all Thongbay friends: we definitely
hope to see you again!
