Rivertime Ecolodge Resort Vientiane Reviews
A great place to away from reality Jul 26, 2014
I decided to visit Loas in too short time and made me no time to think where to visit.. I surfed the internet and found this Rivertime Resort.. It is situated 29 kilometres north-east of the Lao capital on the south bank of the Nam Ngum river (a tributary of the Mekong). The location is mid-way between Vientiane and the mountainous Phou Khao Kwai National Protected Area (NPA). I think, well.. this is the time to back to nature.. relax and forget about the crapy thing of life..
I had local massage, boat trip and visiting local villiage at day time and non-stop chatting in the floating restaurant with the other 2 people whom I met here and traveled by themselves, too.. we had great time together..so much chatting to rethink about life..
In my opinion, food is great here.. the price is reasonable and delicious..
In addition, the owner and staff are friendly and helpful.. I came with little information of Loas.. Luckily, I stayed here and they are patiently feeding me the info I need.. moreover, they upgraded my accommodation from a bed to a room.. It was nice, but... it was very "the world by yourself" feeling.. a bit scary though.. haha..
Overall, I am glad to stay here.. hopefully, I may come again in the future..
