Don Daeng

Streched out like an old croc sunning itself in the middle of the Mekong, Don Daeng is a little like an island that time forgot.
It's classic middle Mekong, with eight villages scattered around its edge and rice fields in the middle.
The small and mostly shaded track that runs around the edge of the 8 km-ling island is mercifully free of cars - bicycles, slow-moving motorbikes and the old dok dok (mini tractor) are all the transport that's required.
The village of Hua Don Daeng, at the northern tip of the island, is where first tourist accommodation has been built.
The simple community guesthouse, with two rooms and mattresses on the floor, makes the perfect base from with to explore the island.
