Welcome to Stung Treng


Loaded with largely untapped tourist potential, Stung Treng could benefit from the increased traffic if people stuck around. The main attractions are near the Lao border, where you can kayak out to a pod of Irrawaddy dolphins then continue downstream along a pretty stretch of the Mekong dotted with flooded forest. Further north, thundering rapids cascade over the border, a spectacular sight that's a continuation of the huge Khone Falls.
