Vang Vieng Laos is a peaceful and lovely little town and a fantastic stop for travelers who seek for the bustle-free atmosphere or the “Tarzan” experiences. With the matchless natural highlights, this town pleases you all with captivating scenery that ignites the sense of freedom and relaxation. Also, the place offers some thrill-seeking activities and adventures that you can only get in Vang Vieng Laos.
#1: Tubing in Vang Vieng
Tubing is one of the most famous games in Vang Vieng that you should always try it out if the adventurous spirit urges you to do. By sitting on a tube (or a life buoy) and following the directional strings, you discover the local caves and grottoes and then get out to jump into the river. River tubing in Vang Vieng is exciting, and the excitement is more when you stop by the local beer stations and have some beer before going on. But note that overnight parties on the river have been stopped since 2012 according to the governmental regulations. The ideal time to start tubing is 1:00 PM.
#2: Biking in Vang Vieng
After checking in the hotel and arranging your luggage, it’s time to get out and hire a bicycle to roam around Vang Vieng and feel the local beauty. Most of the guests will take pleasure to see the simple Laos houses, the verdant trees, the slow-paced life, and the somehow “sleepy” atmosphere. That is the scenario you need to find peace and joy in running away from the city bustle and hassle. That is what “Tarzan” has, to enjoy himself amid the pristine Nature.
#3: Kayaking on Nam Song River
Take your paddle and try 7km kayaking on Nam Song River! Then, when you are amid the river, contemplate the destination which is “leaning on the mountains and facing the river.” What an ideal and beautiful setting! Kayaking brings the awesome experience of sightseeing Nature, from the white cloud above the sky, the mysteriously far-off mountains, and the verdant rice fields. You can understand why other vacationers and backpackers choose to relax in Vang Vieng but not any other towns. The romantic, pristine, and pretty spectacle is well supported by the all-year-round greenness and charming river meandering the limestone ranges.
#4: Ziplining in Vang Vieng
Vang Vieng Day Tours nowadays often cover the activity of Zipline that players are well-equipped to travel from the top to the bottom of the cable by holding on to and freely moving. This kind of entertainment is exciting, and in fact, the Vang Vieng Zipline tour is hot sold. Over the verdant rainforest canopy, you will be attaching to the cable and moving to finish this “challenge.” Especially in this destination, Zipline activity enables you to move quickly and freely, with the maze of cables, for the distinctive “Tarzan-like” feeling.
#5: Swimming in Blue Lagoon
The emerald water of Blue Lagoon in Vang Vieng has been enchanting visitors who love swimming and swinging on the rocking chair in the water. Note that this Lagoon is quite deep and if you don’t know how to swim, make sure you wear the life jacket while playing around. The genuine emerald landscape of this natural attraction is surely worth contemplating all seasons.
Around 150km from Vientiane capital of Laos, Vang Vieng welcomes numerous travelers in and out on a daily basis, but the town preserves the idyllic and bustle-free atmosphere of the countryside destination. There, you find the fresh and cool air, the peaceful countryside settings to relax, and the exciting games (tubing, kayaking, zip lining, etc.) to challenge. In other times, you can try fishing in silence, reading a book on the hammock hung between the coconut trees, and watching the sunset. Travel to Vang Vieng early on!
