The route to Chiang Khong is interesting. You get a fairly good impression of rural northern Thailand and life outside the big cities. When you arrive in Chiang Khong, tuktuks are waiting at the busstation to bring you to your hotel (50 B.). If you haven't picked one yet, just explain the tuktuk driver the amount of luxury you need (hahaha) and he will take you somewhere. My guesthouse (500 B., lost its name) is located right on the waterfront close to the station. I had a room overlooking the Mekong and a great, beery night with some German friends I met just a few hours before in the bus. Prices of guesthouses tend to be high and the town is not really worth mentioning. But hey, who cares, it's just for one night. Tomorrow: Laos!
