The Si Phan Don Islands, also known as the 4,000 islands, are located in Southern Laos. Don Det, Don Khon, and Don Kong are the three most popular islands to visit.
Renting a bicycle and exploring the islands is a great way to spend a leisurely day. Boat tours of the Mekong River and kayaking tours are also available.
Khone Phapheng Falls is a must-see attraction while on the islands and is the widest waterfall in the world.
Rustic family-run bungalows are the most common accommodation option on the islands. Despite the lack of luxuries, the 4,000 islands are worth a visit for a few days.
