#3 of 7 in Parks in Vang Vieng
Explore halls and narrow corridors of Tham Chang Cave, which provided a refuge for the inhabitants of a neighboring village during the wars of the 19th century. To get to the entrance of the cave, you need to cross a river on a wooden bridge and climb a hill overgrown with lush vegetation. Once in the cave, follow the well-lit pathways secured by wooden railings. From the entrance, you can see the surrounding fields, the river, and the village--the spot remains ideal for snapping a few memorable photos.

  • After the arduous climb, over 150 steps, you will be treated with a great view. Then it goes into the great cave. The cave is very well built and can be walked very well. There are numerous photo stops. It is also a small shrine on the inside and a Vista platform. Worthwhile in any case.

  • A cave among the most accessible of Vang Vieng. 1 km to the city (don't contribute especially to the racket of the tuk tuk), she is beautiful and furnished and offers a beautiful view of the surroundings. To access it, through an old resort that charged the bridge (2000 Kip / pers. free for our children aged 8 and 10, we pay less as a pedestrian). Then there is the access to the cave (10000 Kip, children do not pay). You can swim in a bowl out of the cave, but the water is cool. Some stalls also sell fruit, but too expensive for the country. In the cave a place dedicated to Buddha. Go early in the morning, we had the cave almost for us. 1 h 30 visit (with the outside) taking his time.

  • Fairly large cave on the heights, you can fall and visit quiet, which is not evident in this small town for Chinese tourists.

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.
