This place is simply amazing. The location is very secluded and you feel like Henri Mouhot when trekking through the jungle or paddling on the river. The bungalows are basic and clean and perfectly serve their purpose (who wants to stay inside when such an amazing scenery is waiting for you outside). Cleanliness is maybe a bit of our European interpretation but this is the jungle after all. The staff is incredible friendly and always helpful (please don't forget to tip!!) and the well-traveled Swedish owner is full of interesting stories about Asia. The food is very good (try the Laap) and fair value. I will definitely come back!!
