Vang Vieng

3.6
Lying 150 km (93 mi) from Vientiane en route to Luang Prabang, and perched on the Song River, Vang Vieng attracts eco-tourists for the bizarre limestone hills surrounding the town. Kayaking, caving, tubing, trekking and rock climbing opportunities make great use of the surrounding nature, while renting a scooter or taking a motorcycle tour represent great ways of exploring the area. During a vacation in Vang Vieng, you can also visit a number of peaceful spots, including a few 15th- and 16th-century Buddhist monasteries, as well as a few small ethnic villages set against the striking river and rugged karst landscape. Take a dip in one of the turquoise lagoons, and when you get tired, recharge with a Lao-style steam sauna. Vang Vieng is in Vientiane Province.

Where to stay in Vang Vieng

A frequently visited eco-tourism spot, Vang Vieng offers a variety of budget and mid-range accommodations and basic tourist services. Most of the lodgings sit between route 13 and Nam Song, with boutique hotels tending to sit closer to the main road and low-key options grouped around the market. Bungalows on the river island are popular among young visitors traveling in groups, although you should ask to view the room and the bathroom before you pay, as these accommodations aren't always in top condition.
