Day 4 - 4000 Islands Cycling - Don Det (B,L,D)
After yesterday’s long cycling strip from the Xe Pian Wetlands, today’s cycling will be based on continuous Island hoping, by boat and with bridges at times.
In the morning, cycle around Don Khong before heading off to visit Don Det and Don Khone, two peaceful islands where plantations and simple villages are almost all you will find.
For lunch today, either enjoy a simple local lunch on the way at a local stall or take away a picnic box from your previous hotel.
The islands played an important role during the French Colonial rule as they linked Laos to Cambodia and Southern Vietnam. To overpass the waterfalls, a railway and bridge were built, the perfect place to take your time and soak in the view.
Next stop will be the impressive Lippi falls, which are wedged between Done Khone Island and the Cambodian border. Their original name, Tad Somphamit, means “trap spirit” and the locals revere these falls as they believe they act as a trap for bad spirits.
In the late afternoon you will return to Don Det to check into your resort. A meal will be prepared for you and your guide as a farewell dinner at the resort.
Overnight at Little Eden.
