This is our guest house where we stayed in Than Thuoc, by the river and off the main road and market. It’s typical of the type of accommodation we find everywhere. An ensuite room, spotlessly clean with both a fan and air conditioning unit, TV and sometimes a small fridge with cold drinks. In addition to the soap, shampoo and toothbrushes, that are provided there are plastic bath slippers and a comb, which are used by all the guests. The comb we steer clear off but the slippers are essential to keep the foot dirt out.
