With the introduction of modern technology and changing economic circumstances, the world is becoming an increasingly difficult place to survive in. As a result, many feel driven to join and pursue a hectic and fast paced life in order to keep up with the demands of the modern world. Naturally, such a lifestyle frequently results in anxiety and stress and one way to reduce the pressures of life and take a break from its demands is to be at one with nature and explore the wonderful and amazing natural world. For those staying in Vientiane serviced apartments in the riverside town of Vang Vieng, being at one with nature is not something that needs to be pursued; it is a reality.
Vang Vieng in Central Laos is an idyllic village by the Nam Song River. Given its iconic natural beauty, it is no surprise that the town thrives on tourism. As a result of this demand, a once quiet village with modest facilities is now home to accommodation options such as Somerset Vientiane, ensuring a comfortable stay in Vang Vieng.
While the municipality hosts a number of bars and restaurants that cater to tourists who seek to unwind over a beer and a meal after a day of trekking, hiking or mountain climbing, the town is also famous for inner tubing and kayaking. While tubing on the River used to be a famous activity indulged in by tourists, subsequent to the unfortunate deaths of a number of visitors, the activity was heavily regulated. However, the night scene in Vang Vieng continues unhampered though police often crackdown on drug use.
The town is also home to a number of caves with numerous rock formations and therefore, rock climbing is also an outdoor activity that can be indulged in. All in all, Vang Vieng is an exciting and beautiful town for a multitude of reasons, and the list of reasons to visit this panoramic municipality in Laos is truly endless.
