Who should go?
Perched right on the edge of the Nam Song River and within a short distance to the limestone rock formations, The Elephant Crossing Hotel is an ideal accommodation for travelers who love the outdoors. It may lack facilities of a five stay or boutique hotel, but that shouldn't put off guests too much if they are looking for a soothing and relaxing environment.
When to go?
From November to February the weather is cool and dry while March to June sees temperatures soaring in to the high 30s (Celsius). July to October tend to be very rainy, washing out some roads thus making rural areas inaccessible. The Lao are very sociable and if you happen to be in the country during one of their festivals, you are sure to get caught up in the lively atmosphere! Pii Mai, Lao New Year, is in April and the celebrations include parades and water fights.
