Location: Vang Vieng, Laos

MapHello All! I am currently in a small town called Vang Vieng. There are four main streets and a river. But the town is totally set up for tourism. There are cafes with pillows and cushions to lay out on, there is a disco (that closes at 12am) and there is tubing!!!SOOOOOO MUCH FUN!! I can tell you that yesterday was a trip highlight! I went on a cave tour in the morning. Not to exciting but in the afternoon we jumped on inner tubes and floated four kms down the river. The river was flowing super slowly, so we are not talking action adventure until you get to the first bar. Every 100m there is a bar. And at the bar the music is pounding! You can play volleyball, or lawn bowl and you can buy buckets of alcohol and all sorts of other party favours if you desire. Then you can climb 10 meters into the air and swing off tarzan ropes, and pulleys, and swings right into the water!!! To much fun!!! It was also a very social atmosphere. By the time we got back it was pitch black outside. A tuk tuk came and picked us up before we reached the end because we were moving so slow that we never would have made it to the end. I couldn't have a late night. At 1am I crawled into bed and left the partying to the youngins!! It was so much fun I am going again today! Hope all is well with all of you. Happy festive season!! Love, Tamarra
