The best option for accommodation on Khone Island, in what is called 4000 islands in southern Laos. It is a bucolic town, with water buffalo "posing" for photos, even a waterfall. Life goes placidly on the river, with log cabin accommodation from € 3. The hostel is a French colonial building with rooms from € 10 on the ground floor and 20 € at the top, with a tasty breakfast included. In the river you can sometimes see dolphins, and to get there you take a bus from Pakse, 4 hours to Nakasang, and then take a boat to the island Don khone.
