Travel Blogs from Vang Vieng

Tripping the Mekong fantastic

A travel blog entry by thealfers


Vang Vieng has always been seen as a notorious spot on the backpacking circuit in Laos – known especially for its hedonistic river tubing activities. Tales of drunken Aussies flinging themselves into the river in a drunken stupor, only to get themselves killed by landing on hidden rocks, were rife. Times have changed though and the government …

Tubing, anyone?

A travel blog entry by maryamosmond


People say you are not quite the traveller when you are in Vang Vieng and NEVER do Tubing. Guess what? I didn't. Oh believe me when I say I went to sleep every night dreaming about going tubing. But it just never happened, because... when I got there I realized it's not my thing. So, NOTE: The rest of this entry will be from the mind of an utterly …

Welcome to the Land of Baguettes

A travel blog entry by maryamosmond


Did I mention that I saved quite a lot on the train and yet wasted a lot on my way up to Vang Vieng? Yes, silly me, I did. I read like a thousand times that there is a 20 baht shuttle train that goes from Nong Khai to Thanaleng, but just as I stepped out from the train, Lily (my all-night Korean companion) and I started to follow the flow instead. …

Round three!

A travel blog entry by _realadventure


Our third & final day in Vang Vieng, so we decide we should try the tubing today. The four of us head down for lunch & then do some shopping to prepare for the tubing. They sell these water resistant bags where you can keep your money & everything in there so it doesn’t get completely soaked. We get all our gear together & …

Round two!

A travel blog entry by _realadventure


We wake up for another day of partying! We end up hearing from Sara that we met in Phi Phi, who is actually staying at the same hotel as us - love meeting new travel friends! We meet up with Sara & head down & get lunch at about 2pm. The restaurants are awesome here, because they just play Family Guy, Friends & South Park all day & …

First of all, yes, the view IS popular. Try to book a room with a view. I suppose there are 9 of them. It's really breathtaking because unlike Domon Guesthouse or any others along the same street, this one doesn't have any construction of disturbing distractions outside your balcony. And it's quite away from the Rocket Bar so it's not noisy at all!!

Everything in the room was clean. Superb. The bed was comfy and the aircon worked alright. Only the TV had a slight problem because there was no interesting English channel. But hey, with all the partying nobody has time to watch TV. The bathroom had the, in my opinion, purest cool water you can ever get and you feel like taking a shower every now and then.

The reception/owner Mr. Vieng is OK, friendly but can be a bit "blur" at times.

The complimentary breakfast consists of baguette, omelette/fried egg, and coffee/tea. In my opinion it was a little too oily but that's just how they cook it. The coffee/tea is free all the time. And they provide mineral water dispenser too. Get a bottle and you'll save thousands (of kips).

You can't get internet in the bedrooms. The common area has books that you can read. The surrounding shops are good/ok as well. All you need is just a few seconds walking distance. ;) I was alone and although I didn't meet anyone, I had the most incredible Me-Time in Vang Vieng. :)

Super close to all the bars & all the tubing you would want to do - plus, the rooms are actually quite nice! I would definitely recommend it to anyone heading there!
