Visited the Island of Don Khon and Don Det ... just a little way from Cambodia and very .. very peaceful. Electric from 5:30 pm to 10:00 pm .. then candles only. Bikes are the only way to travel and the scenery is stunning.

The most attractive site around Pakse is Si Pan Don or the Four Thousands Islands where thousands of isles and sandbars rise from the Mekhong River ・this is the widest part of the river breadth, expanding about 14 kilometers or nine miles. The islands can be seen from January to March and will be submerged during the monsoon period, from May to November. This was our happy captain ....


these are some of the tourist huts ....


this is the old hospital we stayed at .... although our room was not to the standard of the hospital rooms ... but not bad !


our view of the Mekong from our room


this is how the locals live ... just about everywhere in Asia so far .... sometimes not even this nice


and this is why you visit the islands ......

















and this is the locomotive the french left behind ... looks more like british rail to me !
