A photo post of my time at Spring River Resort. The main reason for this stay was to visit Kong Lor cave which is a 7km deep abyss accessible by motorised canoes.
The mud track up to the resort.
The main reception and eating area with river view bungalows in the background.
The complex is small and built on stilts so no matter what the season the stay is always accessible.
Looking towards the garden view bungalows, where I stayed. Double and twin rooms are available from £8.00 a night, Bargain. The river view bungalows are a little more expensive but totally worth is with a private bathroom and phenomenal view.
The staff cater for your every need from the central reception. The food menu has local and western favourites, so eating here is a real treat.
River view from the central eating area with a blue lagoon running from a Spring into the river, this is where the locals collect their water and bathe.
Picture perfect scenery.
The resort has paddle boats which can be taken to the lagoon, the water is ice cold and perfect for swimming.
The breakfast menu doesn't break the bank either, £3.00 for local Laos coffee, fresh pineapple juice and toast with local forest honey. Other options include pancakes, waffles and eggs.
Fresh fruit smoothies are also available.
The local dinner menu has a variety of choices including this fried papaya salad with sticky rice. Additionally the value is phenomenal at £3.50 a portion.
The main reason for the stay was to visit Kong Lor cave which is incredible inside with the stalagmites and stalagmites formations.
