Where I stayed
Mr. Mo's Guesthouse
This morning we made our way to Wat Phou which is an ancient Khmer temple and is of course a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Wat Phou was the centre of the Khmer kingdom until Angkor Wat was built. We wandered around the ruins for a couple hours and then made our way to Don Det in the 4000 Islands, which are at the very southern end of Laos. To get to the islands, we had to take a small boat and arrived at a small sandy beach.
Don Det is beautiful, but the other travelers there were a bit crusty
Once back, I went to take a shower as I was a bit dusty from the dirt paths. In the room, I noticed a yellow gecko on the ceiling. When I came out of the shower, it was gone, but had left a little present on the bed – a little nugget of poo! Lovely.
For dinner, we enjoyed our last traditional Lao meal and then met up with our fellow travelers after. It was an early evening as we had to be up to leave before 7 am as we will be starting our journey back to Bangkok.
