In the extreme South of Laos, Mekong River breaks down into a myriad of arms and channels, which surround countless islands and islets. This region is called "Si Phan Don", which in Laos means "4000 islands". These idyllic islands where a bamboo bungalow goes for a buck and the stunning sunsets are free. Come here to see the dolphins, savor the atmosphere on your relaxing time!
• Khong Island, a 'picture-perfect' experience of Laos
• Explore the scenic Don Khong Island and the biggest waterfall in Asia
[Day 1] Khong IslandMeals: lunch | Accommodation: N/A
In the morning, you will take a 140km-drive from Pakse downtown to the southernmost part of Champassak province, which forms the border with Cambodia. Here, the Mekong river spreads to a width up to 14km; during the rainy season, it creates hundreds of islands and islets. The larger island is inhabited and the largest southern island, Don Khone has an old disused 5km railway, built by the French as part of the Mekong bypass route. The river cannot be navigated south of Don Khone because of the Khone Falls - the smaller Samphamit Falls and the larger Khong Phabeng Falls - the biggest in Asia, and maybe the widest falls in the world. Near the waterfalls, you can also find out the endangered Irriwaddy dolphins. Lunch is at a local restaurant before being transferred back to town.
