Eco-playground in Laos opens to a wider audience
Tailored to your desires
Thanks to the country’s recently opened first railway link and a new expressway, the adventure destination of Vang Vieng is now just a one-hour journey from the capital Vientiane.
Nestled in a scenic bend in the Nam Song River and surrounded by a towering limestone terrain, Vang Vieng is Laos’ premier eco-tourism destination. The lofty limestone karsts are honeycombed with an extensive network of tunnels and caves and these can be explored on foot or by swimming along subterranean streams. Other activities include rock-climbing, trekking, cycling, kayaking and river tubing.
The improved transport links have led to an upgrade of Vang Vieng’s hotel stock and more sustainable and environmentally-friendly tours. One of the best accommodation choices is the award-winning Riverside Boutique Hotel. Every room celebrates cultural diversity, with furniture and decoration inspired by the country’s diverse ethnic groups.
