Vang Vieng is a town in Laos, located in Vientiane Province. Vang Vieng today is mainly a backpacker town. The main street is littered with guest houses, bars, restaurants, internet cafes, and tour agencies. One of the main attractions of the town is inner tubing on the river and Kayaking. During the wet season, the river can be a series of raging rapids, but during the dry season, some of it is only a little more than a trickle. Climbing the limestone mountains is another popular activity. The market is located five kilometres north of the town selling Lao textiles, household items, and several stalls selling dubious foodstuffs. But the real attractions of the area are the scenery, the limestone hills and the numerous caves and caverns. Perhaps the most interesting is the Tham Phu Kham cave, half an hour's ride away from Vang Vieng by tuk-tuk or rented motorbike.

Interacting with one of the wisest and most gentle creatures in the animal kingdom is a spiritual experience, and riding your elephant through the green countryside and rugged mountains of Luang Prabang, you’ll feel a deep connection to this serene, slow-paced land.
