Vang Vieng - Beautiful Tourist Spot Go Back
 
Vang Vieng is a very small village in Laos. But you will see the nature here. There is a dusty road near to my guest house I lived. I spent one night during my trip to Laos.

The market is located five kilometres north of the town selling Lao textiles, household items and several stalls selling dubious foodstuffs. In the town there is a wat that is notable in looking rundown and keeping its valuables chained behind a door. The town is situated on the main north-south highway, Route 13 from Luang Prabang to the capital, Vientiane.

But the real attractions of the area are the scenery, the limestone hills and the numerous caves and caverns. Perhaps the most interesting is the Tham Phu Kham cave, half an hour from Vang Vieng by tuk-tuk or rented motorbike.

One of the main features of the town is a long, mostly unused, airfield runway parallel to the road. It was used during the Vietnam War by the Air America’s planes (the airstrip was then called “Lima site 6").

The town started to grow in the 1980s, due to the influx of backpackers. The opportunity for hiking and the laid-back atmosphere attracted more and more visitors.
