Located in the “Four Thousand Islands”, Don Khon is the civilized sister island to popular Don Det. Incredibly laid back but with remarkable sights that are easy travelled to, the island boasts South-East Asia’s largest waterfall and a family of the very rare Irrawaddy dolphin on the border with Cambodia. Don Khon is slowly becoming a bit of an upmarket tourist retreat but regardless of where you are staying, don’t expect to do anything more active than the occasional dip in the Mekong River-this is a place to unwind and forget about the stresses and strains of city life. The accommodation here ranges from inexpensive to luxury so there is something for everyone and every budget but regardless of where you stay, you will not forget the peace and tranquillity of Don Khon and the surrounding islands for a long time to come. Despite the tourism-based development that is proceeding, staying on the island is still a very ‘rustic’ experience with only a few restaurants and bars and there is very little nightlife. But then people do not come to Laos for cocktail bars, they come to live in a lush tropical paradise and Don Khon fits the bill nicely.
