Fodor's Expert Review Irrawaddy dolphins

Si Phan Don and the 4,000 Islands Nature Preserve/Wildlife Refuge

Downstream from Don Khon, at the border between Laos and Cambodia, freshwater Irrawaddy dolphins frolic in a protected area of the Mekong. Boat trips to view the dolphins set off from Tha Sanam Beach, south of Liphi Falls. Even better, head out to see the dolphins by kayak. All the guesthouses in town can arrange trips.
