Don Daeng is a small idyllic island on the Mekong River not far from Champasak town, gateway to the Wat Phou World Heritage Site. Travelers can stop off on the island to relax and enjoy Lao rural life before or after visiting the Wat Phou Temple complex or en route to the 4000 Island area. Accommodation is offered in a community lodge or with local families and visitors can spend the day walking or biking around the island’s tree-shaded paths and sandy beaches, visiting the many cultural sites and sampling its abundant fruits and fresh fish.

Tourists can stay overnight in the community lodge or with local families and learn about traditional livelihoods such as basket weaving, fishing and rice farming.

The community on the island benefits directly through providing accommodation, guiding and lodge hospitality services, boat transport, bike rentals and the sale of locally produced food and handicrafts.
