Don't usually feel a deep sense of loss on leaving a hotel, but we did here. We had a vast house to ourselves that was kept stocked and immaculately clean by friendly staff, and the most magnificent views over the 25 metre pool to the Mekong. Total seclusion yet a 10 minute (free) bicycle ride from probably the best town I've visited in the Far East. There was some music coming from the village but I'd rather feel part of local life than tucked away in a gated, faceless resort and it all stops at 11.30pm because of curfew. The people here were keen only to ensure we had a great time. Thanks to them, we did.
