Where I stayed
We rented a couple of bikes to cycle around the island and also did some trekking up the mountain in the centre of the island to see the "Buddha cave" - the walk was great but the cave was more of a small hole in the rock. Also worth seeing awere the nearby waterfalls close to Don Deth and Don Khone.
There is a "car ferry" - which is more of a large raft, with ropes to haul the thing from one side of the river to another.
Lovely countryside all around and beautiful river views. Saw lots of local houses on stilts with the family animals running around\d underneath. Many baby piglet tethered to keep out of the sun. Also lots of chickens.
