          The Elephant Crossing was very nice and has incredible views. Breakfast included with nicely made eggs and a small buffet. Right on the Song river and overlooking incredible mountain scenery reminiscent of the strange peaks of Halong Bay, Vietnam. Very nice!

          There is a private dirt lot as well as what seemed to be fairly secure area where one could put their bike.
