Embark on a mini kayaking and caving adventure on the Nam Song River in tranquil Vang Vieng. This is a great way to get a little exercise and experience the peaceful beauty of the Laotian countryside.
Like a rural scene from an Oriental silk painting, Vang Vieng crouches low over the Nam Song with a backdrop of serene cliffs and a tapestry of vivid green paddy fields. Thanks to the iron fist of the Lao government finally making its presence felt in 2012 (when the river rave bars were finally closed down), the increasingly toxic party scene has been banished and the community is recalibrating itself as an outdoor paradise home with some achingly lovely boutique hotels and a raft of adrenalin-inducing and nature-based activities.
Drive about three hours from Vientiane to the lovely town of Vang Vieng. You have time in the afternoon to explore this quaint, peaceful town.
Begin your kayaking adventure north of town on the Nam Song River. Enjoy the tranquil landscape before stopping at a couple of caves along the way. Both caves partially submerged, so you can explore them by swimming. Paddling the last leg brings you to your riverside bungalow with time to rest and enjoy the sunset.
Depart Vang Vieng and return to Vientiane.
