Itinerary

Day 1| Don Det > Don Loppadi > Don Xhangphai > Don Phouman > Don Khong

After an early breakfast go with the bicycle by boat (about 7:45 AM) from Don Det to Don Loppadi, a raw and unspoiled island of farms and rice paddy fields. Here you bicycle on small (sandy, stony, sometimes muddy) tracks. After 9 km north/east you take a small boat to Don Xhangphai. Most cycling will be along the waterline. You will cycle around 8 km on this island and will go further to Don Phouman. All this islands give you an impression of the real local life.

You will find the last ferry point after 4 km. On the other side you will arrive close to a Wat on Don Khong (Houay). Find the paved road and ride around 5,5 km to the north for Muang Khong.

In the afternoon it is time for relaxing and recovering in Muang Kong, or if you still like, cycle round the Island on fairly good road in the late afternoon (takes 20 to 30 km and 1 to 2 hours, depending the size of the loop you choose).

Day 2| Don Khong > Don Som > Don Det

Have a good and early breakfast and then pedal the same way south, as you arrived the day before, underpass the big bridge again. At km 7.5 from guesthouse find the ferry point. Cross over by small ferry to Don Som where you will see: local villages, rice-paddies, wooden bridges, fisherman village, Wat. A beautiful cycling rout about 19 km on a quiet island. Then you go back with the boat from Don Som to Don Det.
