Kamu Lodge is a wonderful place to stop on the way by river from Luang Prabeng to Chang Rai in northern Thailand. Good tent accomodation, fun trying the activities, rice planting, net fishing, etc and having contact with the villagers. For me the best was the evening meal in the hut built in the middle of the rice paddy fields, with only the sounds of the nearby forest, and th noise of the ocasional water buffalo.
My only regret was that I did not stay another night though most people stay one night before carrying on along the Mekong. Next time !!
