Boat captain on the return journey tried to convinced me and a swiss national to join another group for a trip to a bigger waterfall, for an extra 40,000 kip. He was not happy when two of us misers refused. We rode to Nakasong, drop off the waterfall group but had to return to Don Khon to "rescue" two passengers whose boat engine died on them. After an hour, we were finally on our way up to Don Khong and had the opportunity to experience a magical sunset over Mekong river while on the Mekong.
Dinner of Chicken Laap at Pan's restaurant was superb and even managed to score a US$12 bus ticket to Kratie, Cambodia. Don Khong Guesthouse was trying to sell me the same ticket for US$15. When you are stretching your dollar, US$12 makes perfect cents!
