Koh Trong island
Just across the water from Kratie is the sleepy island of Koh Trong, nestled in the middle of the Mekong River. A great spot to relax from the toils of travel for a day or two, the island is home to a small community of predominantly fishing and farming families. Having crossed over the Mekong River by ferry, you will be greeted by an ox-drawn cart for the short journey to your lodge, passing through the sleepy community en route. During yoru stay on Kong Trong there are a variety of activities to fill your days – kick back and enjoy the relaxed pace of life, explore the island by foot or bike, swim in the Mekong River (between December and May), visit some nearby villages lending a hand in the fields.
