Cave
Take a dip in a small emerald-colored river, or explore an ancient cave at Tham Phu Kham Cave and Blue Lagoon, an improvised eco-water park in a scenic village close to Vang Vieng. Observe sharp stalactites and stalagmites as you descend down steep walls to reach the largest hall of the cave, which contains a gilt bronze statue of a reclining Buddha, with several other smaller Buddha images revered by locals. The green-blue waters of the lagoon outside the cave provide a good relaxation spot, as well as the opportunity to jump off a tree into the water. You can also try your hand at abseiling or hurtle down one of the water slides throughout the day.

  • Although the Blue Lagoon is the most publicized, in my opinion she is the worst. People of all ages there's just the crowd, a bunch of companies with its music, food and alcohol. No natural attractions there-just peregorozhennyj a piece of river-bed mountain river in which swimming, jump rope, trees, etc. Set the water very fiddly-jagged concrete slabs, you can damage the feet. In the river floating trash carelessly thrown out by visitors. On busy can't even dream of. Recommend other, more distant blue lagoons.

  • A nice bike ride from town, but the place itself is overcrowded. It is better to climb up to the cave, sweat and then cool off in the water on the way down. There are better stops along the way, with ...  more »
