Head out on the highway
What we say:
Vang Vieng's surrounds are easy to explore on two wheels, motorised or not. With dozens of caves, swimming lagoons and villages, all easily accessible and well-signed from a decent dirt loop road, hiring your own wheels is an effective way to get around.
Bicycle daily rentals start at 10,000 kip for street bikes or from 20,000 kip for mountain bikes. Renting a motorcycle for a full day starts around 40,000 kip.
The Hobo Map is a good investment for cyclists as it shows all roads (even the dirt paths) plus attractions, shops and toll bridges. Look for it at the convenience stores in town where it costs 25,000 kip.
A good trip to do is the loop out to the Blue Lagoon and around the mountains back to Vang Vieng. The roads are quite bumpy, but the scenery is unequalled.
