While in Vientiane we saw some postcards of the area and discovered that besides being a party town Vang Vieng is also in a beautiful valley surrounded by striking mountains and a 'blue lagoon' nearby. We decided that we could deal with the drunken party crowd and, as long as we got up early enough, could probably float down the river in peace and tranquility which, as it happened, is exactly how it worked out!
|We stopped off at a local bar to use their rope swing (video|
likely coming soon) and their pier for a jump or two.
|A relaxing float down the river. We had it|
practically all to ourselves!!
|Caving near the river. Didn't think we'd ever|
fit through this small space but we all did!
