Kratie is an amazing eastern province with a small population, who make their lives on the picturesque riverbanks of the powerful Mekong. It’s incredible that you can enjoy spectacular sunrises and sunsets almost every day you are here, which is really rare in many other destinations. Travelers are always seeking, waiting, even pursuing sunsets to satisfy their aesthetic passion and nature love, but here, splendid nature of Kratie displays its amusing performance of the sun normally everyday for visitors to enjoy. Beyond the riverbanks it is a remote place with almost no population and thick-forested areas to calm down. The stretch of the river around Kratie town is home to a group of rare sweet water Irrawaddy dolphins, which are now a protected species and a joy to see. The river also has hundreds of green islands, and circling water, which are great to explore by boat or kayak. The river scene of Kratie has a beautiful river boulevard with dozens of local snack and drink stands in the late afternoon and evening, making this a nice spot to relax and simply watch the local people parading by. The river road is a great place for a stroll or jog and taking great photos.
