Known for its mountainous limestone karst peaks and scenic cliffs, the small town of Vang Vieng is located nearly four hours north of Vientiane and sits on the riverbank of the Nam Song River.
Once synonymous as a backpacker’s haven, and although still a fairly popular area for the young, the town has worked hard on changing its stance and appeal, welcoming all those in search of relaxation.
At the base of the town’s mountains are a network of stalactite and stalagmite caves worth exploring, whilst adventure activities including kayaking, canoeing, caving, tubing, rafting, hiking, mountain biking and rock climbing also remain popular.
If adventure activities are not quite for you then within the area there are a few 16-17th century monasteries and traditional Hmong villages you may wish to explore.
