Van Vieng is a small centuries-old settlement set up as a staging post between Luang Pra Bang and Vientiane. It was first named Van Vieng during the French colonial rule at the start of the 20th century. Nowadays, it has become a major tourist orientated town, with the main street offering many restaurants, varying styles of accommodation, bars and internet cafes.
Tubing and Kayaking
The reason this town has become so famous is because the local organic farmer inadvertently started the tubing trend in the late 90’s. He bought a few rubber tubes for his farm volunteers to relax on the river with, and the town quickly became famous for this activity. The main appeal is now a 2km stretch which is wide at points, offering various stops at bars and cafes along the way. During the wet season, the river can become a series of rapids and can be quite dangerous.
Climbing is a fairly new activity in this region. With the spectacular limestone formation, climbers can access the crags free of charge, with 1 to 3 day courses available at various agencies in the town.
There are some fantastic roads surrounding this scenic area and a motorcycle tour is a great way to get out and enjoy the scenery. Companies offer day tours and these are suitable for beginners. They even throw in some off-road trails and is sure to be a great memory and experience of being out in the countryside of South East Asia.
