Today was spent mainly travelling. We left Vientiane by bus and headed towards Vang Vieng which is a little town near the Mekong river.
I had the famous burger at the Aussie bar for dinner and I have to say it was pretty good! We walked around and explored Vang Vieng for the rest of the day.
9am start today and we were picked up by Tuk Tuk towards the Mekong river for an activity filled day!
The first activity was Caving
Kayaking was next...I realised how different it was kayaking on the river as opposed to the ocean like we did in Halong Bay. I felt a bit more confident but still went with a guide. The scenery was absolutely stunning and we met other people who had booked the trip too. I particular Peter and Patrick who I saved ;)...and then splashed!! The tour provided lunch...barbequed veg and chicken with veg rice...it was pretty good.
There are usually numerous bars dotted along the river where the trip usually stops but we heard they had recently been shut down as there have been deaths (last one in January) when people kayak/swim when drunk!
Meera and I got a bite to eat near the river and we went to 'Monkey Bar' in the evening. It was pretty busy and we met up with the other tour, Patrick and Peter.
Plan for tomorrow is a 7hr bus trip to Luang Prabang ..x
