4,000 Islands Region in Laos


Don Det is the third largest Mekong River island in the Si Phan Don, or Four Thousand Islands, region of Laos. The other big islands where visitors can stay are the neighbouring island of Don Khon, connected to Don Det by a bridge, and Don Khong which is a ferry and bus journey to the north of Don Det. As the name suggests, the Si Phan Don region has lots of islands to explore, most of which are uninhabited and many flooded during the rainy season.

The Si Phan Don Region is very rural with limited facilities for visitors and few large buildings. There are a number of waterfalls, temples and other points of interest to visit but the main activities to do in the area are river based. There are lots of river tours you can take allowing you to visit more of the smaller islands and get a sense of the size of the the river delta area where the islands are located. You also be lucky enough to see one of the 20 or so river dolphins that live in the area. Hiking, biking and kayaking are also recommended activities. To really enjoy the area probably we recommend that you strike out on your own and enjoy the peace and beauty of the area away from other tourists.
