Once known chiefly for its raucous backpacker scene, the pretty town of Vang Vieng is now coming into its own as a haven for rest and recreation. In addition to the traveller, families and other tourists are using the Nam Song River that flows through the town for kayaking and boat trips.
Meanwhile, the gorgeous limestone karst dotted countryside surrounding the town is witnessing increasing traffic from mountain bikers, motorbike riders, rock climbers and spelunkers. It is low-key and wholesome stuff for a town whose raucousness was a thing of dubious legend.
This satisfying escape exposes guests to the full array of attractions in the vicinity of Vang Vieng. Of particular interest are the many caves that dot the countryside, such as Tham Chang, considered by many to be the most important cave in the area. Other highlights of the tour, meanwhile, include a Lao cookery class at Vang Vieng Organic Farm, which specializes in refreshing mulberry tea as well as having a range of livestock and organic crops.
