After more than 4,000 km of journey, the Majestic Mekong River has reached its widest point, suddenly after tropical rainy season its water declines and leaves behind myriad of greenish islands as the local called it “The 4,000 Islands”, further downstream the “Mother of Rivers” fanning out into many streams and created a breathtaking view of tranquil and permanent islands with luxuriant vegetation. Done Khone or Khone Island, is reputed for its coconut grove as the French explorer Francis Garnier called “The Fluvial Lao Tahiti”. If you wandering around the peaceful village you will discover typical Budhist temples and the remnants left by the French expeditionary troops: Old Pier, a decayed railway bridge and some colonial villas.
Further down stream, a raging “Devil Corridor” Li Phi Waterfalls where you can enjoy swimming, sun baking on the white sand beach and spotting the rare Irrawaddy Dolphins.
Sala Done Khone, situates on the Mekong River and right in the heart of Ban Khone village where you ride a bicycle over the French Railway Bridge to Done Deth island is a short distance. You will find yourself soaked in the colonial ambience of our hotel which provide the most comfort and full facilities in the whole island.
