Vang Vieng, Laos


When: 1st until 3rd May
Why: the nearest attraction in Vientiane
How: A 3 hours bus ride from the capital city of Vientiane

It was a smooth long 3 hours bus ride from the capital of Vientiane to Vang Vieng on labor's day. There are not many cars on the road. In fact, you can count the number of vehicles on the road.

My view most of the time

The awesome view from the road

We went tubing the next day. Vang Vieng is a popular place for tubing activity. Tubing is actually riding a big tube in the water. First we went tubing in the cave then kayaking down the Mekong River. This was the only fun thing we did here.

They provided us lunch. Rice and baked meat and vegetables. It was super delicious. I loved it.

Kayaking in a hot weather is not cool. It was super hot even though it rained earlier.

There is also another place where you can swim; Blue Lagoon. I heard that the water is clear and there are swings just above the water. Furthermore, I read that there are happening parties Friday night. You have to ask the locals regarding these parties etc.

Travel the world and share the experience with friends.

Wassalam & Cheers.
