  • Nice spot away from the town centre. FYI there’s a free tuk tuk service to and from their cafe in town. Friendly staff and free tour seeing how their products are made. Great views from their cafe.
  • The production facility tour is wonderful and the restaurant’s location on the Mekong offers great views. However, we waited more than an hour for our grilled fish and the waiter forgot our order for a papaya salad.
  • Wonderful selection of textiles and great sunset views of the Mekong River from the café. I highly recommend a visit, and wish that I could have spent more time here.
  • Amazing place to visit for an afternoon lunch, happy hour, views of the Mekong river, sunset and a tour of the fair trade workshop where artisans from nearby villages come and weave silk fabrics and get paid by the articles they make. The experience overall was 5*! Drinks were superb, service was so friendly, prices were down to earth and views were heavenly.
  • Very quiet and peaceful place. Free information tours take place every half hour (15 minutes long) There is a restaurant and a bar with an amazing view and very reasonable prices. The view on Mekong is very beautiful and I recommend to have a nap there !!! The staff is also friendly.
