Vang Vieng is known as a place where young backpackers go to party insanely and play in the river. Since all river-bank bars had to be closed after the deaths of several people, the reputation of this small Laotian village is now slowly changing back to what attracted people in the first place – it’s beauty and chilled atmosphere. Tubing and drinking are still ones of the most popular attractions, but many other things can be experienced in Vang Vieng.
I spent 9 days in Vang Vieng and it was my the best time in Laos. I have met amazing people, done things I haven’t done before, experienced unforgettable moments and seen stunning scenery.
