In the deep south of Laos, next to the Cambodian Border many small islands loom out of the (temporarily brown) waters of the Mekong river. Most of the islands are the terrain of water buffalos and ricefields. On Don Det and Don Khon a small backpacker scene can be found which offers small bungalows, bars and kayak tours. Most travellers come here to relax and meet other travellers. Besides that, the island resembles the mainland very much and it is great to bike through the ricepaddies, explore hidden waterfalls (the biggest in southeast asia among them) and if you're lucky you can spot the rare but ugly Irrawaddy dolphin.
