I arrived in Luang Prabang after the two day boat trip. The Sokhdee, which I stayed in last trip, was full. As I meandered down the roadsm, it was apparent everything seemed booked. Eventually, I walked into Choumkhong which had a vacancy at $30 US. At the late hour, I took the room knowing I would have a great night's sleep, and downgrade next day. It was a peaceful oasis, nice bathroom, superb bed, fresh fuit, all the amenities including a host who made me a cup of coffee.
