Vang Vieng ~ Blue Lagoon

Vang Vieng ~ Blue Lagoon

It’s a tiny little swimming hole the color of watered down Powerade. Water cold and refreshing, with a rope swing and multi-level tree jumps, washes away trail dust. The cave in the cliffs above is accessible only by a steep, slippery, sloped stairway. A gold Buddha lays on a golden dais inside, among the dew dropped boulders of this former hideout for Laotian rebels. Beer and chips for sale. A wonderful setting amid a resplendent jungle town.
