The Mekong Discovery Trail. The name alone sounds exotic… romantic… rustic. Part of what drew us to Kratie, so far off the tourist track, was the opportunity to explore the area along the Mekong River.

The web site has it all mapped out: the quaint villages, the 100 Pillars Pagoda, the ferry. When we hit the road, we probably should have known that things wouldn’t turn out as we had planned.
