Meet Don Khong on The Mekong

Immerse yourself in Mekong River life at the island home of colonial France’s Southern Laos headquarters. Take a lap of the island and spend the night before your onward journey in the 4,000 Islands.


Don Khong marks the real start the 4,000 Islands, and is located 135 km south of Pakse. It is easily accessed from Route 13 at Hat Xai Khun by bridge or ferry to Khong Town. A lap of the island by bicycle or motorbike on its paved road stops at the District Museum in a French colonial structure that once housed the provincial governor, ancient Buddhist temples and religious shrines, Khmer ruins, and a village producing palm sugar. Khong Town offers a row of clean guesthouses. Tourists often stop at Don Khong en-route to Don Khone.
