VangVieng for many travelers is simply a piece of heaven on earth. Surrounded by scenic landscape ranging from mountains to rivers and limestone cliffs to rice fields, this small and scenic town offers a long list of interesting attractions. The Nam Song River is where all the action or relaxing is. It all started back in the day with tubing along the river but now there is a host of activities to choose from, including kayaking, trekking and rock climbing. You can also explore the caves where the villagers hid from the bombings in the Indochina wars. Tham Poukham Cave which features a ‘Blue Lagoon’, a great spot for swimming and Tham Norn is among one of the biggest caves in VangVieng. About 4 km upstream there is a local organic farm which makes for a great half-day trip.
