A Day in The 4000 Islands - Full Day

Meals MEALS [ L ]

Take an adventure through Si Phan Don, the Mekong River’s 4000 Island region. Start with a drive to Ban Nakasang village followed by a short boat trip to Don Khon, one of the largest inhabited islands. Bike around the island, passing fading colonial buildings, rice paddies and other farms. Cycling is a great way to see the traditional lifestyle of Southern Laos’ people. There are plenty of chances to stop for photos or to talk with the friendly residents.

Continue to the western side of the island to visit Lippi Waterfalls. Near the Cambodian border, the local people believe these falls trap bad spirits. There is a short stretch of railway track, built during the era of French colonial rule, which makes a perfect viewing platform.

Return to the boat and cruise around the Mekong River. This stretch of the river is around 14 kilometres wide and filled with more than 4000 islands, thus giving the region its name. There is plenty to see- from beautiful riverside villages to local fishing boats plying the water. The rare Irrawaddy Dolphin also resides in this part of the Mekong and, from time to time, they can be spotted near the surface.

Stop at a local restaurant for lunch, soaking in the tranquil surroundings while dining on freshly prepared Lao dishes. Then transfer to the mainland and return to town in time for sunset. (L)
