Tales of Tubing!

LAOS | Wed, 12 Apr 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [758] | Comments [1]

The day had arrived for us to go tubing! We had been excited about this activity since before we started the trip. We headed down to the pick up point, grabbing some food from a street vendor along the way. We paid, filled in a disclaimer document and ... Read more >

Semuc Champey - underground caves and river tubing / El Tunco, El Salvador - detour to a small surf town

GUATEMALA | Wed, 15 Jul 2015 | By sheree | Views [750]

Matt and I were getting the  8am  shuttle the next morning to Semuc Champey, still not feeling the best. It ended up being a 10 hour ride and our shuttle was jam packed with people and seats were so uncomfortable. We were right behind the driver ... Read more >

Vang Vieng, después del caos

LAOS | Sat, 31 May 2014 | By miguel_rubi | Views [605]

Llegamos a la que un día fue "la Meca de los mochileros", y una parada indiscutible en la "Banana Pancake Trail", sólo que ahora este pequeño poblado en Laos está más tranquilo, y casi en quiebra... Hasta hace menos ... Read more >

Rivers: tubes, elephants and waterfalls.

LAOS | Tue, 12 Nov 2013 | By rutha90 | Views [1561]

From Vientiane, I travelled on an EXTREMELY packed full minivan up to Vang Vieng. Now, it's really only famous in the backpacker scene for one thing. Tubing. Along the river. Between bars. Actually, it used to be completely crazy with about 48 bars ... Read more >

Si Phan Don (4000 islands, Laos)

LAOS | Tue, 25 Jun 2013 | By paulpiorun | Views [2093]

Our journey to the 4000 islands took the best part of a full day. We only had time to stay for 2 nights and we opted to stay on the popular island of Don Det. After finding some accomodation close to river we all had some nice chill out time. ... Read more >

LAOS | Tue, 12 Mar 2013 | By dunkyandbambini | Views [404]

I'm writing this on our final leg of a 20 hour journey back to the thailand so excuse any mistakes. I'm tired. Saying goodbye to Laos after 10 days of activities and drinking. Didn't expect it to be such a drink-fuelled part of the trip but somehow we ... Read more >

Vang Vieng and Vientiane, Laos

LAOS | Sat, 1 Dec 2012 | By sglass | Views [1115]

After such a wonderful time in Luang Prabang, we were excited to explore some other cities in Laos. Namely, Vang Vieng and the capital, Vientiane. Turns out Laos is a bit of a mixed bag. In contrast to picture-perfect Luang Prabang (LP), which feels ... Read more >

UPDATE: Lao authorities have reportedly closed 7 of the 100 or so bars and restaurants along the Nam Song river at Vang Vieng in an apparent crackdown on illegal and dangerous behaviour. News.com.au quotes sources who say the bars were closed ... Read more >

Vang Vieng, Parties and Sun Glasses

LAOS | Thu, 13 Jan 2011 | By hannah82 | Views [1016]

Did someone say "Partay!"?  Many words could be used to describe the small town of Vang Vieng, roughly 6 hours north of the Laos capital city Vientiane, but 'party' seems the most appropriate. After preparing ourselves very early in the morning, ... Read more >

Its all just fab-Laos..!!

LAOS | Sun, 21 Feb 2010 | By thebigtrip | Views [1863]

So we made it to Laos alive. I have to say that I have a slight fear of flying but after that journey I am now a true believer in the fact that your far more likely to be killed on the road than on a plane… esp. on the roads around here. Its all part ... Read more >

Laos gets a huge THUMBS UP!!!!

LAOS | Wed, 23 Dec 2009 | By missy_carrie_gee | Views [3328]

Me and Phil are having a blast in Laos. It's really beautiful, and laid back. We like it more than Thailand! Which is funny b/c Thailand is supposed to be the best place to travel. We already have our tickets back to Thailand set and a hotel reserved ... Read more >

Loving (and Leaving) Laos... OR Tuk-Tuks, Tubing and Thai Visas

LAOS | Tue, 20 Oct 2009 | By hannahandemma | Views [811] | Comments [4]

Laos is the most chilled out, laid-back, relaxed place I have ever been. Seriously. It's like the Jamaica of the East (or so I assume, never having been to Jamaica). While it's taken Hannah a little while to get used to living on "Laos time"... Read more >

Laos (8-6-09 / 18-6-09)

LAOS | Mon, 22 Jun 2009 | By jesseandjustine | Views [886]

Laos is amazing. It is a small country on the border of Thailand, China and Vietnam. We arrived there after a long long long slow boat journey that took two days. The boat on the first day was not bad. We had room to move and cushions to sit on. We willed ... Read more >

In the tubing - Vang Vieng

LAOS | Sat, 2 May 2009 | By eoghancito | Views [1816]

An early jumbo took us from from the airfield to the bus station. The road to Vang Vieng was steep and windy but the full volume Thai power ballads entertained. We arrived early, suddenly and a tuk tuk whisked us off on the hot dusty roadside to Phoom ... Read more >

Vang Vieng - Laos' Party Town

LAOS | Fri, 6 Feb 2009 | By jciecko | Views [6509] | Comments [1]

Vang Vieng is a fun, but conflicted town. On one side of the river you have beautiful limestone mountains, endless caves, and slow village life. On the other side of the river you have backpacker party central. Some would call it backpacker hell, but ... Read more >
