While Vang Vieng was once the party hub of Southeast Asia for backpackers seeking the famous tubing adventures down the river, the Lao government carried out a crackdown in 2012 to re-create this gorgeous area of the country resulting in a removal of the river bars and update on safety regulations. Today, Vang Vieng is a hub of adventure tourism with activities ranging including climbing, kayaking, hiking, mountain biking, and so much more! While this gorgeous town tends to focus on families with active kids and teens, it is possible to bring along the whole gang. Little Steps recently visited Vang Vieng and has put together a handy guide to get you started on your planning. Prepare for beauty, nature, and plenty of family fun!
