Lying 150 km (93 mi) from Vientiane en route to Luang Prabang, and perched on the Song River, Vang Vieng attracts eco-tourists for the bizarre limestone hills surrounding the town.

Designated a World Heritage Site in 1995, Luang Prabang sits at the meeting point of two rivers and offers numerous opportunities for sailing, climbing, and exploring scenic caves and waterfalls.
Visit Wat Xiengthong and Wat Sensoukharam for their historical value. Do some cultural sightseeing at Old Quarter Luang Prabang and Traditional Arts and Ethnology Centre. There's still lots to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Phousi, get your bearings at The Living Land Farm, and don't miss a visit to Alms Giving Ceremony.
