Favorite thing: There is basically no electricity in the village but the town generator runs for a few hours in the evening, enough so everyone can have a light. During mt visit there was no interne or telephone service.
Favorite thing: There is a small medical centre if you turn left out of the boat centre but it is very basic. I was up mall night with a terrible dose of LBM and excruciating stomach pains and in the morning i had absolutely no energy. Fortunately i discovered that the owner of our bungalows served as a doctor for many years in Laos and came here to retire and set up his business. He actually had a very small pharmacy at the front of his home, so he examined me, gave me a few pills, took it easy for the day and the next day i was as good as new again. Dr Joy can be found at Suan Phao Bungalows at the eastern end of the village
