We only spent two days on Don Det, one of the islands that make up the 4000 Island archipelago in the south of Laos, buy we managed to fit quite a bit in during that time. Our first day we hired bikes and explored rode from Don Det to the neighbouring Don Khong to check out the village, some waterfalls and a few other areas. We found a nice little bar that had some cabanas to chill out in and have a beer.We cruised all over the islands and the ride was actually quite a long one, so we were pretty happy to get back to the hotel in the afternoon and rest our butts.
The next day we went on a full day kayaking trip around the island, checking out some more waterfalls, spotting some endangered Mekong river dolphins from afar, playing with some kids in a village at lunch and finally checking out one more waterfall. A fun day that involved a LOT of paddling and left us fearing for when we actually have to start exercising when we get home!
