Kratie is a lovely little country town on the way to the Cambodia/Laos border. It is a great place to see the rare Irrawaddy dolphin (a 25 minute moto ride from town via a road lined with authentic rural Cambodian life). Just be sure to be clear about what is included, the boatmen have been known to ask for extra money to see the rapids upstream. These are said to be good when the river is high(which was lucky as it was dry season and there would have been little to see) but it may be interesting when the river is higher.

There is a bustling market which is a great place to watch frogs being skinned (and escaping first through the holes in the nets), sample some delicious foods (such as freshly grilled corn cakes) and generally take in rural Cambodian life. We spent a pleasant morning wandering around town.  The main temple is worth a look.
