Self-Quarantine in Vientiane, Laos: (Review) Sengphachanh Hotel 2

I have to admit, I haven’t been very productive in the past few weeks. I’ve got some things going on, and I also got some new clients for my business that I focused more on other things than this blog.

But then I realized that it’s already the middle of December, and I’m still yet to finish my piece on my last Indochina trip. Now that you know how I got sick in Vientiane, it’s time for me to write a review about the hotel where I spent my self-quarantine in Laos’s capital city.

When I was in Pakse, I booked Sengphachanh Hotel 2 in Vientiane as I realized that the hotel offers the lowest rate compared to other hotels with the same facilities in the capital city.

Post-Lockdown Staycation Experience: Blackbird Hotel in Bandung, Indonesia

In case you didn’t know, I barely left the house from April to September. Since I fell ill on my way from Pakse to Vientiane in February, I was hesitant to travel. Even domestically.

It was only a couple of months ago when I decided to go out once in a while, mostly for work, as I found an ideal coworking space at Eduplex in my hometown. So, after half a year of spending the whole time at home, I decided to finally book a hotel room for a staycation again last month.

I took my family for a post-lockdown staycation at Blackbird Hotel, a boutique hotel situated around Cihideung in Bandung, my hometown. At the time, I booked both the medium and large room as I went with my siblings and my mom.

So, how was my experience for having a staycation at Blackbird Hotel?!

Review: Dream Resort Farm in Pakse, Champasak (South Laos)

Hi everyone!

So, my progress to finish up the articles for my last Indochina trip takes longer than I expected. For some reason, I feel I get distracted way too quickly lately, and God forbids the procrastinating trait in me developed quite vastly these days.

Anyway, after I published my post on how to get to Laos from Cambodia by bus the other day, I’ve finally managed to spare some time to write this piece.

And this time, I’m going to share my experience staying at Dream Resort Farm, the accommodation where I stayed a few days in Pakse, the capital city of the southern Laotian province of Champasak.
