We have 21 places to stay in and around Vang Vieng.
Vang Vieng town lies in between the Nam Song river and an old airport runway that runs parallel to Route 13. Vang Vieng is overrun with same-same budget guesthouses but the good news for travellers is that accommodation here is excellent value. Backpackers can get great budget digs for not a lot and some even come with five-star views. Even though a bed in a hostel costs nearly the same as a fan room with private bathroom, they remain a big hit with the younger crowd.
The other side of the river is just a hop and a skip away, but it feels like another world. Staying west of the Nam Song removes you from the hustle and bustle of town and gives you more opportunity to appreciate Vang Vieng’s natural beauty. The other side is accessible via the permanent toll bridge at the south end of town, and a bamboo bridge in dry season or a ferryboat in wet season in the north end.
