Day 1 - Vientiane - Vang Vieng (Cycling) (L,D)
Welcome to the wild side of Laos! Your guide and driver will meet you in Vientiane at 8.00am today for a 4 hour drive north, along route 13 towards Vang Vieng.
We will stop along the way for a rest break and try out the homemade Lao iced coffee!
You’ll arrive in Vang Vieng around Noon and have time to check-in to your hotel and change into some cycling attire before meeting up with your guide for some lunch overlooking the Nam Song River at the Thavonsouk Resort.
We ride out of town on off road trails, through rice paddies, villages of diverse ethnic origins, and through picturesque landscapes, surrounded by Vang Vieng’s well-known limestone karst cliffs before crossing a bridge to visit a very unusual cave, unique in its architecture, with secret corridors, wells and underground lakes. Nearby, the Blue Lagoon welcomes you for a refreshing dip before heading back to town.
This evening enjoy dinner at The Veranda one of Vang Vieng’s most charming restaurants.
