Actually before I got there I kind of had this idea that I might not like this place that much. From what I read Vang Viang is a place that you either love or hate... And as soon as I got of the bus, I did like that little backpackers' town even if I am not a lover of "happy" pizzas or magic mushrooms:)) I do like "Friends", but it was a bit too much that in every single cafeteria they were showing these series... The karst hills, river, scenic surroundings... that was what impressed me... I stayed further away from the "island", that is away from the party zone... rented a bike to go to the blue lagoon and took a walk to the nearby caves.. amazing... the major attraction of Vang Viang is tubing... painted drunk bodies going down the river on a tube:) There is an ecofarm close by.. loved the food of ecofarm's cafeteria in Vang Viang, tried some local laaps with lao beer there in one of very few places that serve traditional lao food (well at least as close to traditional lao food as you can get in Vang Viang). Vang Viang can be suitable for party lovers as well as for people looking for some quiet scenic places.... You can get everything in there:)) met some very nice people there as well:) so my memories from Vang Viang are only the best:))

I was very happy with my accommodation in Vang Vieng. As soon as I got of the bus and started thinking which way to go to look for a place to stay, some guys stopped and handed me in a flyer about this new guesthouse Jamie's guesthouse or Jaemie's... smth like that... 40 000 kip, that's around 5 USD.. free bananas and tea haha further away from the bar zone... exactly what I needed! I was told it is new, so I won't find it in my Lonely Planet book... I decided to check it out. And it was just amazing.. The room was very clean, spacious with 1 double and 1 single bed and brand new, private toilet and hot shower, and I slept like a baby!!! The Australian man who checked me in was so great and such a help. It seems everywhere I go I meet Aussies and I love them!!! One of the best places I have stayed in while traveling around Laos and Thailand.

Vang Vieng today is mainly a backpacker town. The main street is littered with guest houses, bars, restaurants, internet cafes and tour agencies. It  surrounded by mountains & rivers. The main attractions are caves, Hmong villages, and the natural mountain scenery. A favorite with travelers - many stay longer than planned.

I had a tour into a big cave guided by a local guy, but you don't have to look for them, you will find you, and offer theis service!  :o)
So this cave was 1 hour into and 1 hore out, with a headlight, everywhere dripstones, but unfortunately everybody touch the wall.... 

And if you rent a bicycle you can ride arond the area.
I want to go back!  :o)))
