This is a great little stop on the bolaven plateau. However one mistake we made was that we didn't bring any coffee back with us and its my husbands favourite coffee ever! So if anyone is able to bring some dark roast coffee back to the UK or post it to the UK PLEASE contact me :)
We had a lovely time at Mr vieng’s, we stayed there with our 2 children for one night. We had a lovely time with his family and some neighbors. Coffee was delicious and the plantation visit very interesting! The dinner was very good too. I highly recommend.
Mr Vieng, the owner, is extremely friendly and welcoming. He also has an amazing laughter that cracks you up every time. The room we paid 20k per pax and dinner was 15k. Room was surprisingly comfortable and by far the best room and most value throughout our time in bolaven Plateau. Dinner was also a generous portion. Try to go for the plantation tour if u can. We didn’t as we had to be moving early.
We only stopped off here for a quick look on our way to Pakse. Mr. Vieng came out and greeted us with open arms. Great vibe at this wonderful setting, he sat down with us as we sampled his homegrown coffee and exchanged stories of his life and our travels. This place was beautiful, his coffee was awesome and we rode away with a beautiful textile table runner that his wife makes and sells from their home. This place is a must see stop on your travels!
We stopped here for a coffee and spontaneously dropped in on the tour around the place and garden held by Mr. Vieng. It was authentic and really nice. I definitely learned something about coffee. I don't want to reveal too much about it, because you should just do it, too! It costs 15000kip (1,5€). Also we bought some coffee beans (500g/60000kip/6€) and of course we had a freshly brewed coffee as well. Mr. Vieng seems as if he's a nice person. We enjoyed our short stop.
