Muang Ngoi: Perfect for a Relaxed Holiday

No electricity, no internet, stay in bungalows facing the Nam Ou river, easy access to the river, a small village atmosphere and loads of relaxation. That is how one can describe Muang Ngoi, the riverside village in North Eastern Laos. People who go here to seek relaxation get their money’s worth. This is one place where not a lot of tourists go to, because it has very basic and limited tourist infrastructure and many who go there, go precisely for this reason.

The river and the hills surrounding it dictate the geography. As a tourist, one can just simply relax, swim in the river, indulge in some kayaking, spend time with the locals and understand their culture, eat some Laon special fish, soak in the green and bright Laon atmosphere and simply lose all connections with civilization. This is one of those places that will help you unwind completely.
