A little dificult to reach and come back
In a nutshell
I'm afraid to post this place on here - I don't want it to change.
steevie_wanders Says: Drink lots of lao-lao (potent rice whisky), pick a partner, then jump 20ft into the warm Mekong.. fun! especially during a tropical storm!From this self same location, after midnight (when the generators have gone quiet) you can hear the roar of the waterfalls, 5 miles away....
Fried frogs is a local speciality that you see quite a bit around Don Khong.
I guess they have taken a liking to them cause they are all over the place and this is your chance to try something you have most likely not tried before.
I have tried it, but i am personally not too keen on the taste of frog.

Don Khong Island is 18 km long and 8 km wide. If Laos is quiet in general, life on the island is very very quiet. Anybody can loose its stress there.
Biking tour of the island is very pleasant as the distance can be done within one day.
Have a strong breakfast in Muang Khong and then take the road to the North, up to the end of the island, even if you have to take a very small path. Then you will come back by the western side, passing through villages, until you reach Muang Saen. Have lunch (chinese soup and soya milk) on the beach (it should be the afternoon).
From there you can choose either to follow the river, either to take the direct road to Muang Khong. All the way, it’s flat, so it’s quite easy for anybody and you do not need any guide.
Equipment: Any kind of bicyle
