Only the place and nature are amazing. Dirty places everywhere. The badest bed on my four week trip in thailand. Old, curved and smelly matrass with bedbugs. Food was not good and too expensive. Always insects in it. The waterfall is great but has nothing to do with this. Try to make a daytrip. Btw: the akhkas are celebrating some...

We read about Akha Hill House in our Rough Guides book and decided to give it a try without looking at reviews...big mistake. We found the Akha River House (A branch owned by the same people but located in the city of Chaing Rai) and asked everyone about Akha Hill House. The first person we talked to seemed to be...

My husband and I were met at the bus station by a tout who is the manager of the hotel. As I had to do a border run with my baby, we did not return in time to go that night, so went the next night instead. At the bus station the guy said they had bungalows beginning at 400...

With a very convenient pick up from anywhere in Chiang Rai, this is a must. Very basic accommodation and very few people about, but that is just what we needed before the hustle and bustle of southern Thailand. The views are spectacular and there are plenty walks which you can do on your own (waterfall, villages, tea plantations, hot springs...

wonderfull place in the mountains, very kind people and excellent guides to make a jungle tour without the visit of a snake, elephant, lion or other farm. Great walks in the nature and a quiet place, really worth a visit!!! better than the trekking from chiang mai or chiang rai

Visited the hill tribe for a few hours, did not sleep at the lodges. The people were nice, the younger ones performed for us. Very memorable stay. Went with tour company so maybe that's why my review is different from other folks.

A couple of friends stayed here and raved about it. My experience wasn't that great. Although the bungalow was inexpensive, the blanket had holes in it as did the mosquito netting. When i asked for tape to fix the holes, there wasn't any. The food was very greasy and salty...definitely the worst Pad Thai I've ever had. The museum was...

The arrogance of the owner and smugness of having good reviews on TA will do this place damage unless they smarten up their act. The only friendly staff member was the guy that drove us out there- even then although the pick up was on time, we drover 10 min and then had to wait over an hr before he...
