Why Vang Vieng?
A small town surrounded by scenic beauty in the countryside of Laos
Located on the banks of the Nam Song River, Vang Vieng town is surrounded by dramatic limestone karst hills, rice fields and dense jungle. Vang Vieng boasts a natural beauty and is very easy to get around on foot with just three main streets. The local restaurants cater for a range of tastes serving a selection of Lao, Chinese, Thai, American and Italian food. A big draw to the area is the stunning countryside. Here you can enjoy popular activities including hiking, rafting, tubing, kayaking, mountain biking, caving and rock climbing. Outside of the rainy season (June – September) the Nam Song River is a popular place for swimmers.
