tour details

Serene cliffs, lush greenery and bustling river life – all part of Vang Vieng’s allure and charm!

From the hotel in Vientiane, transfer to the Vang Xang archaeological site. The name means ‘Elephant Palace’, a reference to the elephant graveyard found in the vicinity. The site, which consists of a cluster of 10 high-relief Buddha sculptures on cliffs, is usually assigned to an 11th century Mon provenance.
The tour continues with a visit to the fish market village named Ban Houei Mo. Afterwards, continue to Vang Vieng and check into the hotel. The small provincial town of Vang Vieng is nestled along a scenic bend of the Nam Song River. The main attraction is the karst topography lining the west bank of the river. There are also sugar loaf hills and dramatic cliffs covered by lush vegetation and peppered by caves and caverns.
After having lunch at local restaurant, the afternoon will continue with riding a small boat for 30 minutes (2 persons per boat) on the Nam Song River and then visiting the biological gardens and the natural Tham Chang cave. Here there is an underground spring and a stunning view over the valley. During the 19th century, the cave was used as a bunker in defence against marauding Yunnanese.

After visiting the cave, return to Vang Vieng Township for further exploration and then have dinner and accommodation at the hotel.
Begin the day with breakfast at the hotel and then visit a local market. Afterward, explore an organic farm, visit the small town of Ban Phatang, stop at a Hmong minority village and then visit Ban Phatao.

Have lunch at a local restaurant and then return by road to Vientiane in the afternoon and transfer to the hotel.
