Where to stay in Huay Xai

Not known for its selection of accommodations, Huay Xai offers just a few places to stay nestled up against the Mekong. These options remain basic but welcoming and, more importantly, budget friendly. Most visitors choose to stay across the river in the Thai town of Chiang Khong, which offers a much wider range of accommodations. Others continue directly on to other destinations deeper in Laos.
