Make sure you order the mouth watering Yum Mak Plee - noodles, banana blossom and a myriad of tastes followed by Mok Pla, the local fish delivered fresh from the Mekong, prepared with a fish mouse, loo basil and steamed in banana leaves.Jules Maury
I really recommend visiting Big Brother Mouse, a fascinating social enterprise that ensures poor villages have access to good schooling and books. Let us know if you are interested in visiting as we can arrange a tour with Ken, the brains behind the amazing operation.Scott Dunn team
