The Four Thousand Islands (Si Phan Don) are a group of islands in a lazy and winding section of the Mekong in Southern Laos.

The islands are laid back, with small huts and guest houses along the banks of the Mekong.

The principal islands of Si Phan Don are Don Khong (the largest), and Don Det and Don Khon.

Outdoor activities include river beaches and waterfalls, and biking is a popular way to get around.

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.
