Vang Vieng is a small town surrounded by mountains & rivers. The main attractions are caves, Hmong villages, and the natural mountain scenery. A favorite with travelers - many stay longer than planned. However this town became too famous for them and became a party village. Music and noise last until late night.

Orientation

When you arrive here by bus, you are suppose to get off at the official bus stop, E from the airfield. But often you are requested to get off at different places. If you see a airfield, it is the bus stop. If you see many guest house signs, you are inside of the town. If you don't see either, you may be at the edge of the town and you have to walk into the town.

No street signs in Van Vieng. So we name those to explain our information.
