Vang Vieng overview

Vang Vieng is a small town located 150km north of the Vientiane Capital. Vang Vieng is a place of a dreamlike landscape of bizarre limestone mountain peaks and scenic cliffs with the Song River (Nam Song) bisecting the town.

At the base of the town’s limestone mountains are a system of caves. There are a variety of well-developed tourism services here and a wide range of accommodations. Water sports such as tubing, kayaking are popular and rock climbing is also a growing pastime. There are some peaceful places like several 16th and 17th century monasteries and the small Hmong villages around this place.

Just off of the route 13 north are two of Vientiane province’s well known attractions: The first is a small man-made reservoir known as Nong Nok near Ban Sivilay which is a great bird watching site. The second is the ancient Vang Xang Buddha images and sculptures that are carved into the side of a sandstone escarpment.
