Fodor's Review

In the middle of the Mekong opposite Wat Phu, this island is a fantastic escape. Nine km (5½ miles) long, Dong Daeng has gorgeous views of the river and the surrounding countryside. An ecotourism program and a long sandy beach have made it popular with visitors to Wat Phu as an alternative to staying in Pakse or Champasak. Bicycles can be rented on the island, and the Provincial Tourist Office in Pakse can arrange homestays. There's also a charming upscale hotel, La Folie Lodge.
