Fodor's Expert Review Auberge Plaine des Jarres
Domaine de Phouphadeng, Phonsavan, Laos
These rustic cabins, set on a hill in a pine forest overlooking the surrounding area, feel more Wild West film than Southeast Asia. Though the setting is romantic, the cabins don't have amenities like air-conditioners or TVs. Then again, they don't really need them. Breezes blow through the spacious rooms, and the views from the cabins, as well as the charming bar and restaurant, can keep you occupied for hours.
