A collection of islands many with guest houses and hotels, ideal for all age groups and budgets. Quiet, easy to get around by boat, just a great part of the world to chill out for a few days.

Make sure you have enough money before heading here! This was a great place to chill out! Hire a bike for cheap and ride round the island, do a kayak tour down the Mekong to see the Irrawaddy Dolphins (make sure you're fit enough if...More
