Located at the north end of the tourist strip near the school, Pa Kha Guesthouse is more in line with the basic bungalow experience that the 4000 Islands—particularly Don Dhet—has become known for.

Here on Don Khon, a single wooden bungalow has four rooms connected by a huge communal balcony overlooking the Mekong. The rooms are basic weathered affairs but do have a tiny private bathroom with hot water shower at a price not commonly found on this island. Rooms have a fan, mosquito net and a window with security bars.

Along with same priced Somphamit Guesthouse, Pa Kha is a backpacker’s best bet for budget on Don Khon. Given the choice between the two, we’d pick Somphamit: it’s more centrally located, right in middle of the strip, and the owners were attentive, while at Pa Kha we were met with disinterest. Both are cheap as chips for this island.
