Tham Phu Kham Cave and Blue Lagoon, Vang Vieng

2.1
#1 of 8 in Nature in Vientiane Province
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.

    The name Blue Lagoon is a misnomer, the water seem more emerald green than blue. Lots of tourist here so be sure to come here on a weekday to enjoy the peace, next to it there is also a hill to climb ...  more »

    Arrived on bikes at the blue lagoon ... got a bit disappointed! There's a pool where diving and to get there you have to rent the lifejackets surcharge even though it has already paid to get in.. Gorgeous instead the bike ride!

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.
