DAY1. BORDER – 4000 ISLAND SURROUND
Meet the guide at the border then Drive toward the southern border stopping to stroll through palm-
fringed villages and explore the imposing Khone Papheng waterfalls then Heading for the area known
locally as Sipandon (meaning ‘4000 Islands’). In this beautiful area the Mekong River reaches 14
kilometers wide and thousands of small islands dot the waterway. Travel first by to the village of Ban
Nakasan. From here you will take a local boat to the peaceful islands of Done Det and Done Khone,
where plantations and simple villages are almost all you will find. We recommend bicycles as the best
way to explore, or a tuk-tuk if you prefer. Visit the impressive Lippi falls, which are on the west of Don
Khone, very close to 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. 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. Continue your exploration and ease in to the slow pace of life, observing
locals and taking your time. Enjoy the rest of your day at leisure and overnight in Don Khong

on the baray (water reservoir) and promenade, the second level features quadrangular pavilions and
galleries of carvings, and the top level is the sanctuary itself. The temple was built by the rulers of the
