Pakbeng is now a destination

Le Grande is so nice and such a great value that we stayed longer than expected in Pakbeng. The resort is set atop a hill probably 200 meters above the Mekong. The views are amazing. Our villa was huge with plenty of space for relaxing. Both the restaurant and pool are at the high point of the resort so you can take in the scenery while dining or taking a swim. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We took a tour of local khmu villages which was really interesting. There is an elephant sanctuary just across the river. More things to do than i realized. Normally I stay at guest houses thinking that the high end resorts are too expensive. Au contraire mon frere. This place is not that expensive and so worth it.
