It takes about 2 and half hours van ride from Vientiane to Vang Vieng. The transportation can be arranged through the hotel or hostel front desk. We did not pre-book any accommodation as we learned that a lot of crazy pubs and bars were call to close down by the local authority and those crazy rave parties is over. Thus a lot of party animals have left town and it is now a peaceful quiet town.
Once we got down from the van, we check the map and ask for direction to the river front. We walked around this layback town trying to look for a nice guesthouse with a beautiful river view. After some walk, finally we found what we want – Popular View Guesthouse. A clean and new guesthouse with fantastic view for 600,000 KIP or USD25 per night, 3 persons sharing room with air-con and hot shower, free breakfast, coffee and tea free flow all time.
Sunset river view right in front of the cozy balcony.
Danny and Patrick chilling with me at the balcony on rum with fruit juice.
Our comfy room with big glass door.
A record of the my fooding memory in Vang Vieng.
Right after we have settle down, we walk around and stop by this river front restaurant next to the guesthouse for lunch.
Joyful face admiring the view.
Oh my favourite food in Laos – Larb Gai (pan fried chicken with basil, mint, lime and chilies) and sticky rice.
