stop over

by olivegroves

I am planning a stop over in van veing but can only find two places listed the backpackers and Babylon guest house with horror reveiws...is there no other places?

Re: stop over

There are dozens of guesthouses in Van Vieng - we didn't book before we arrived and had the choice of many places from cheap dives to nice guest houses - all very cheap. We stayed in a great place for US$6 - I would love to have reviewed it but lost the name of it further on in our travels.

If you can't find any info here I wouldn't worry too much - just get a place on arrival as we did. There were plenty of touts at the bus station waiting to greet us and show us places.

I stayed at Thavonsouk Resort in Vang Vieng, which was around $20 a night for bungalow type accommodation, though theres quite a few other places to choose from, try the website www.vientiane-hotel-link.com/laos, this is where i booked all my Laos accommodation. Hope this is helpful and enjoy Laos!

like others have said there are plenty gusethouses in VV. In hign season lots of good value places get full easy, then it's good to be there early, about noon or so. no need to bother about those two, however, there are so many others with no mention anywhere yet still very good ones.

One of the best places to sleep in Vang Vieng is probably Ban Sabai, and you can book it via Green Discovery Laos.

Travel Tips for Vang Vieng

The Nam Song River

by Maximilian21

The Nam song river flows through the town of Vang Vieng and provides a beautiful setting for a quaint town. Many guesthouses and huts are situated on the river bank which permaeate the towns sence of tranquility.
Perhaps the main activity in town is tubing along the river. You ususally pay hire a rubber tube or tyre and pay for a taxi several kilometers up river. The river decent is slow and very pleasurable. There are added bonuses along the way with small "bars" along the river side selling beer. You simply paddle over ,stop for a little while and then get back in the river and let the current flout you downstream

Sandals with Full Strap!

by blacksnail

I think a Sandal with Full Strap is a must!!! why? because u can wear it while tubing and river swing! if u don't wear it, then u have to risk ur feet to step on something unnecessary. if you wear slippers, you might lose it!

For Ladies: bikini for the water games and a big scarf to cover your body while visiting villages Sun Block, Mosquito Repellent Water Proof Camera..

Caves

by diamond_dog

There are alot of caves in the surounding areas, you can buy a map of the places in town but most of them are useless. You might be able to walk to some of them or you can get one of the MaoTseTung tractors that take people to the caves from various locations around town. If you have nothing to do, which is very possible in Vang Vieng then some of them are worth seeing.

Caves...

by chrisvandenbroucke

The surroundings of Vang Vieng are known for their caves.
One option is to rent a bike and try to find some on your own. The map in our (old) Lonely PLanet wasn't good and we rode for two hours without getting anywhere.
Finally we arrived at Vang Vieng resort where we found this nice bridge.
We returned to the city, delivered our bikes and went walking... much easier and nicer

Have fun tubing on Nam Song river!

by li-anne

Do as everybody does- tubing on the Nam Song river! Some people come to Vang Vieng only to experience this activity. The tubing!
You go to the office Tubing Today in Vang Vieng center. Here you rent a tube for 40.000 kip, and a safety vest is included if you want or need one.
You can also rent a dry-bag for a supplementary 10.000 kip. In this bag you can store your camera during the tubing, and it will stay dry. A tuktuk will drop you at the Poudaeng Organic Mulberry farm, about 4 km upstream. Here you can enjoy a cup of mulberry tea or something else before taking off!
You just float on the Nam Song river, and on the way back to Vang Vieng you'll see plenty of bamboo-bars. Some of them have build real nice jump-offs, and some of them have those big ropes on which you can swing above the river and them dropp off.
The owners of the bamboo bars will try to get you to their bars, so they'll fish you out of the river with a long bambou branch.
We were here in july, and the river was running faster now in the rainy season, but it was no problem with the tubes. Nobody got lost, or went too fast or so. The children wore the safety vests, just in case of.....
The bamboo bars all play this very relaxing music, in the style of "don't worry, be happy", time has stopped since then over here.
It took us about 3 hours to make the trip, it just depends on how many times you stop and for how long. It's all up to you.
When you approach Vang Vieng, you'll see a sign; finish the tube. This is on the island, and the stream is quite strong here, we had some troubles going on land in time.
Then all you'll have to do is, walking back to the tubing office to bring back the tube.
I thing the whole tubing thing is an unique experience, just floating in a tube and enjoy the beautiful scenery, how good life can get?
