Don Det, Laos

A visa-run took me to Don Det, a beautiful and serene part of Laos that has been sadly transformed by young backpackers looking for parties and drug abuse, which has highly affected the local culture. 

However, those looking for tranquility and for an authentic experience are still able to have them, and this pretty little island may very well be a very good option for those in the region traveling in a low-budget.
